New Welcome Centre and Sunset Avenue only mark the beginning 


News Editor 

Late in the 2015 winter term, the 
University of Windsor took prior¬ 
ity on some obstruction projects on 
campus to give the grounds a facelift 

These early projects consisted of cre¬ 
ating a new Welcome Centre on Wy¬ 
andotte Street and the reconstruc¬ 
tion of Sunset Avenue, attempting to 
make open concept areas for both 
the students and employees of the 

The new Welcome Center can be 
seen in the forefront of the grounds 
off of Wyandotte Street where the 
dd parking lot in front of Erie Hall 
was. The glass building features open 
concept ideals on the inside with very 
little dosed spaces and glass encased 
rooms Outside of the building there 
are green spaces for students and 
workers to relax, study and enjoy the 
new addition* 

John Coleman, the director of pub¬ 
lic affairs and communkations at 

the University of Windsor, said the 
university has been very busy during 
the summer and students who are 

returning are going to see some big 
changes around the campus. 

“The new Welcome Centre is at the 

focal point ofWyandotte and Patricia 
and will be the greeting hub of the en¬ 
tire school^ said Colmm "The land¬ 
scaping is just being finished outside 
and were exdfced for people to come 
and visit as the school year starts out" 

Coleman said the bidding is meant 

to be a common ground for students 

faculty and staff to come and hang 


The other big project which took 
place over the summer was foe face¬ 
lift of Sunset Avenue Coleman said 
it is an incredible project and has 
changed the street completely from a 
high-traffic area to a student gather¬ 
ing area 

"There are a lot of cod features such 
as the new square-shaped street limits 
that have a modem look to them, the 
green areas all along the street and, 
what 1 think is foe most unique fea¬ 
ture, are foe newly installed learning 
podsT said Cdemaa “The pods are 
essentially hangout areas where stii- 
dents and faculty can work and hang 

The Sunset project, which is still in¬ 
complete, has a budget of $49 mil¬ 
lion and will continue construction 
into the school year. 

Earlier this year; foe University of 
Windsor was one of five schools

ranked the greenest in North Amo-- 
ka and Coleman said these projects 
are adding to that posona 

Another big oanstniction pro^ 
university is continuing is the integra¬ 
tion of the downtown campus. Stu¬ 
dents are going to see the first part 
open up this M. 

“The Centre for Executive and Pro¬ 
fessional Education downtown will 
have over 500 people moving down 
there including students, faculty and 
staff said Coleman. “There is still 
work being done on the outside but 
you can see staff has moved in on 
foe inside and the building is almost 

Additionally, Coleman said hav¬ 
ing foe social weak programs in the 
downtown sectorwiD be a very good 
foing for the students because foe en- 
vironment will only benefit foe stud¬

SoCA Over the Summer: What Happened 
and What’s In Store for 2015-16 

The Armouries building located in downtown Windsor is under construction as it will be set to be the 
new home for UWtndsor School of Creative Arts students by summer 2017,

Arts Editor 

The School of Creative Aits (SoCA) 
underwent some changes and delays 
over the summer months as it pre¬ 
pares for its 48th season. 

What was supposed to be the schools 
final year in the LaBd building has 
turned into the penultimate Students 
in die SoCA program won't be mov¬ 
ing into their downtown location un¬ 
til summer 2017, Initially confirmed 
earlier in the season, one of die causes 
for the delay had been due to the Ar¬ 
mouries buildings dose distance to 
the Windsor-Detroit tunnel, accord¬ 
ing to SoCAs marketing co-ordinator 
Susan McKee, 

'The tunnel board had to approve 
the construction and then they had 
to have these vibration sensors in¬ 
stalled along Freedom Way!’ McKee 
said "‘That took a couple of months 
longer than expected” 

Despite the setback, die school 
doesn't mind staying in thdr current 
digs for a little bit longer However 
therefc some anxiousness in the air 
as die corr^etion of the project will 
lead to numerous partnerships be¬ 
tween SoCA and several downtown 
businesses such as the Windsor Sym¬ 

phony Orchestra and the Art Gallery 

‘Were really’ looking to do more 
things in partnership with arts or¬ 
ganizations in Windsor and Essex 
County!’ McKee said ‘"We always 
have, but were going to be downtown 
so theres going to be more opportu¬ 
nities when wti get there” 

With the 48th season on the horizon* 
die school has prepared a number of 
concerts, exhibitions and workshops 
with the help of a wide variety of spe¬ 
cial guests. One of the events to occur 
in the fall includes an artist talk with 
Dr. Garnet Hertz, a Research Chair in 
Design and Media Arts at Emily Carr 
University in Vancouver In late Oc¬ 
tober, the school will host a concert 
for Project Trio, where artists merge 
aspects within a variety of musical 

‘They’re aE world dass artists indi¬ 
vidual!); but they kind of combine 

classical, rock, new age, you name rtf 

McKee said 

There was also a significant staff 
change during the off months. In 
July the school appointed Dr, Bruce 
Kotowich as the new Director of 
Choirs, Originally from Winnipeg, 
Kotowich was working as a director 
at Lanas College in Iowa before set¬ 

tling into Windsor. 

T really wasn’t looking for a major 
movei' Kotowich said Thtogs were 
going well for me in Iowa, but the 
opportunity to come home was very 
important to me” 

tor is setting up auditions for both the 
University Singers and the Chambers 
Choir With a sign-up sheet at the 

aD university students in the form of 
an elective. Auditions are set tobegin 

during the first week of dasses and 
will be hdd at Kotowidis office. Ulti¬ 
mately he hopes to have the singers at 
top form and suspend them towards 
a national stage. 

This being my first year, Fm in 
support of getting a better grasp of 

university culture, the community 
needs, and to make sure these two 
ensembles are as heahhy as possible! 3 

Kotowich said The students need 
to know that I will be here long term, 
that there* going to be growth* therefe 
going to be opportunities! 1 

The complete schedule of the 48th 
season can be found on the SoCA

And whw he feds no relief from racism and

‘■Superheroes” walked amongst mor¬ 
tals as the Easter Seals held a kick-off 
event on the 27th floor of Caesars 
Windsor Augustus Tower promot¬ 
ing the buSd up of fundraising for 
Drop Zone as it enters its final year. 

Drop Zone is a national fundraising 
event where individuals and teams 
get to become superheroes for the 
day helping to raise a minimum of 
$1,500 in pledges to support children 
with physical disabilities. 

On Aug, 25 f Easter Seals Ontario 
Ambassadors, Caesars Windsor rep¬ 
resentatives and committee mem¬ 
bers of the Windsor-Essex Drop 
Zone all gathered to the area where 
mdivkhiak or teams who raise the 
minimum amount will be eligible 
to rappel 27-storeys off of Augustus 

Afshin All > the Development Of¬ 
ficer of Easter Seals Windsor-Essex, 
asks a simple question to those who 
are leery of foe once in a lifetime pos¬ 

"Why wouklnt you? Why wouldn't 
you want to rappel off of Caesars 
Windsor and hang out and enjoy 
the Detroit skyline? I& a fun event, 
ife esdting and ifs unique in that not 
a tot of people do this in their spare 
time,” said AJL “Were really exdfced, 
we want more of a draw from par¬ 
ticipants. Last year we raked a total 
of $60,000 in pledges for children of 
Easter Seek. This year we're hoping to 

raises to SBQ.OQtf 

Since 1922, Easter Seals Ontario lias 
helped create a better life for children 
and youth with physical disabilities 
from all ethnic and religious back¬ 
grounds. Heading into the final year 
ofDrop Zone Windsor, Ali hopes the 
people of Windsor-Essex will sup¬ 
port this unique fondnusing event 
before it leaves foe dty far good 

“Because it is a different event and ilk 
for children with physical disabilities 
it makes people want to do it' said 
AL "Ifs more rewarding and you 

know where foe fandraising dollars 



Easter Seals is known as an industry 
leader in providing specialized rec¬ 
reation programs for children with 
physical disabilities at camps, which 
provide opportunities for sodal de¬ 
velopment As wet hearing and mo¬ 
bility equipment devices are provided 
to families in need Almost all Eas¬ 
ter Seats programs and services are 
funded entirely through donations, 
whether it be by individuals, sponsors 
and foundations. 

Ram Sridhar, District Chair for Eas¬ 
ter Seals Ontario, said to reach their 
goal foe event would need approxi¬ 
mately 65 people raising $1,500. As of 
Aug. 25, Sridhar said theywere about 
halfway to their goal but also hopes 
they will surpass it and make it ahuge 

“This is foe one charitable event 
where you're doing something that 
the kids have to face everydayf said 
Sridhar. “They have to face a chal¬ 

lenge everyday. To get somewhere or 
do someth!^ whether it is \ 
an adult or someone able-bodied or 
somebody overeoming a fear In do¬ 
ing this, you fed better about yourself, 
ifs quite a feding." 

Sridhar, a Masters of Economics 
graduate of the University of Wind¬ 
sor in 2003 says seeing the exhilarat¬ 
ed faces erf participants who take the 
plunge down the 27-stories and take 
in all of foe sightlines is an experience 
in itself 

Theres no better vkw in the dty 
than Caesar's Windsor, so anyone 
who participates in this wil have an 
experience that foe vast majority of 
their fellow residents will never have,” 
said Sridhar. They should take ad¬ 
vantage of it, tor sure You get to be a 
superhero for a day; the kids get to be 
a superhero for a lifetime”

A comedy scene in Windsor could 
have been declared miniscule at best 
just a few yeare aga But new ifs no¬ 
ticeably gaining momentum as it 
continues to draw in audience mem¬ 
bers whove never been to a show 

“My friend invited me, it was all his 
idea But it was a good show Fd defi¬ 
nitely come badC Orton said 

The second annual Border City 
Comedy Best has left a lingering pres¬ 
ence over the summer as it ended its 
eighth and final week of competition 
on Aug 28 and 29 at the Comedy 
Quarry inside Rodthead Pub. Sixty- 
four stand-up comics joked their way 
through in hopes of winning the top 
ics competed ever die course of eight 
weeks, with each winner clinching a 
spot at the late September finale at the 
Okie Walker/ilk Theatre, 

Tfe like watdung Last Comic Stand¬ 
ing, but in your own backyard" said 
host and Comedy Quarry co-owner 

Comics are given between five and 

six minutes to perform their routine 
in hopes to advance to the next night 
Three comics then advance and are 
given 10 minutes to deliver an act 
which will bring them to the finale 
Theres likely Me doubt as to the ap¬ 
peal of the cash prize, but fur cumk 
fay Gill the opportunity to perform 
is enough. 

"Its not about getting the money but 
getting another spotT Gill said “To¬ 
day is about gelling tomorrow and 
tomorrow I get 10 minutes. When 
youre three years in, a win is just get¬ 
ting on stage.” 

Gill, a second year Law student at 
the University of Windsor, has been 
a stand-up comic for three years. As 
far as prime inspiration goes, he dtes 
a Louis CK performance which left 
quite an impression, enough for him 
to want to try his hand as a comedian 

“He wasn't just saying things to say 
them. He was saying them and Ire 
had a point that hit home, both chi 
the laugh and with the truth of&atT 
QD said 

There were laughs, there were 
groans, and the dub was at near ca¬ 
pacity when the lights dimmed and 
the show began Petadeau said the 

reception for the festival this year was 
similar to the first, with the majority 
of shows selling out With comedy 
nights popping up at a more consis¬ 
tent basis around the city it may be 
safe to assume the emerging local 
scene may not be bowing out any¬ 

'Comedy has come so far in Wind¬ 
sor from having more local showcas¬ 
es to having two dubs that are active. 
Theres lots more comedy coming 
through,” Pdadeau said “Bor die 
festival to draw such a good crowd 

comedy’s really slow season, really 

great to see people coming out and 
supporting it” 

The finale for the competition will 
begin on September 25 and will con- 
dude the following evening, 

UWindsor Students and the Federal Elections 

Upcoming elections captivate postsecondary audiences 


News Editor 

The upcoming federal election lias a 
fot of people arguing, debating and 
posting opinions, campaign ads and 
links to election related propaganda 

The buzz has hit almost ail corners 
of foe social aides in Canada and 
the University of Windsor and other 
postsecondary institutions are no 
exceptions, With a very high portion 
of eligible voters, foe group could be 
a major turning point when it comes 
down to voting day although, many 
say they dorit feel the information 
to make an educated vote is readily’ 

Fourth year btochemistry student, 
Victor Igbokwe said he feels a lot of 
the Canadian candidates are “politi¬ 
cal ninjas'! 

“I would follow the politics more 
closely ifit was better advertised^ said 
Igbokwe. T know more about foe 
American politks because the)’are all 
over the media.” 

Igbokwe said if he had access to a 
pamphlet which broke down foe 
candidates and their platforms he 
would feel more informed and pre¬ 

4f Studenls should be involved in 
politics and feel comfortable doing 
it,” said Igbokwe. “Students are a key 
demographic of the country that a tot 
ofpolides affect but we have no real 

Another UWindsor student in foe 
dramatic arts department Shane 
Morris, said students are the next 
generation and politicians should 
keep them in mind now for their 
own futures. 

“The country is being shifted into 
our hands and we need to continue 
to shape it and form it for years to fol- 
lowT said Monk 

Morris also added politics have to 
wave away from foe “dub” mentality 
they have 

“Show us this is more than just old¬ 
er men trying to fight their batiks 

through young mens lives while liv¬ 
ing liresofluxuryf said Monk “Lead 
undent rule us” 

Morris said his knowledge of this 
years campaigns is based off of the 
more popular candidates Stephen 
Harper, for foe Conservative Party 
and Justin Trudeau, for foe Liberal 

Morris said he believes politics have 
become a popularity contest to see 
who can be elected for another term 
and maintain a “fen base” He said he 
doesn’t want a celebrity to lead Cana¬ 
da blindly as a figurehead, he wants a 
ruler who will walk “through & battle¬ 
field with us” 

"third year psychology UWindsor 
student, Emily McQoskey said stu¬ 
dent involvement in politics is very 

“Students should be involved because 
this ts our future and country that 
we have to live inT said MeGoskey. 
“If the government tries to target the 
larger population of foe generation 

ahead of us and satisfy them, die 
voice of the younger population goes 
unnoticed and they become less in¬ 
terested to politics.” 

McQoskey said politicians should 
try harder to target postsecondary 
students and to do more to inform 
them in general. She said having eas¬ 
ily accessible, point-form informa¬ 
tion would benefit a lot of foe uni¬ 
versity and college age groups, as well 
as make them more confident when 
wanting to gst involved 

“Political involvement isn't a right, 
its a responsibility^ said Mitchell De- 
mais, a fourth year Fblities and Gov¬ 
ernance at Ryerson University. “As 
citizens we're obligated to participate, 
Ks foe price we pay for the franchise” 

Demars said politicians dorit adver¬ 
tise themselves in a way which ap¬ 
peals to the way media is turning over 
to foe internet 

"I think the parties are too reliant 
on traditional mediaT said Demars, 
Nobody watches TV in this genera¬ 


He also said more education in poli¬ 
tics would be good, especially in high 

In high school you study advanced 
math and physics but you just baidy 
scrape the surface of politics, eco¬ 
nomics or sodotogyT said Demars. 
“Most people in our age category 
know very’ little about political the¬ 
ory, foe structure of foe government 
or even bask legal rights and I think it 
really hurts politicization.”

The Walkerville area found itself in 
typically busy feshion over the week¬ 
end with the bdp of the weekly food 
market, but a calmer evening was 
hdd just a stones throwaway 

The Walkerville Artists Co-op hdd 
its first bookfeir and open mic Aug, 
28 consisting of eight local authors 
whove had their work published and 
ready to read From fact to fiction, 
poetry to short story, each author 
went up to speak about their work 
read excerpts, 

Theres some life some death. Some 
sweet and saltyT said author Monique 
Hebert on her book'Profound: A Po¬ 
etic Journey 

The authors' books were available 
for purchase and signing during the 
event as well The night was orga¬ 
nized by Chris Fond, who said this is 
the first of many readings to come. 
She hopes to have at least one more 
by the end of the year. Her book, A 
Poetic Journey! is a reflective piece 
which touches upon her time woik- 
ingwith children. 

“I was a social worker for years so ife 
different things taken from my expe¬ 
rience working with street kklsT said 

With each author taking turns to 
speak, the words were sdf-reffective 
and no subject was off limits. Some 
were mere life moments, while oth¬ 
ers touched on child slavery; mental 
abuse and overcoming personal dif¬ 

ficulties. Amina AbduHe was one of 
the authors present, reading from her 
Book Swimming! which is a collec¬ 
tion of poems sheb written over the 
years on a variety of subjects, 

T really just allowed myself to pick

with and I fdt represented me wdlf 
AbduHe said 

Working as a teacher, AbduHe main¬ 
tains her motivation to write by al¬ 
lowing herself to be influenced with 
what's going on around her, from the 
stories her students teH to the news 
articles she reads. It helps her shape 
a new project and die feds writing is 
the one time where she feds at peace

it comes to writing ifs the only time I 
fed good and it feds right” 

The attendance for the evening was 
smaH, for just over a dozen people 
in aH liad diawn up. But there was a 
connection between those speaking 
the words and those listening in. Ford 
believes spoken word to be deeply 
powerful, and among the most to-

Arts Editor 

When t he word hip-hop comes to 
mind, people naturally think about 
rap music, but for some people like 
event co-coordinator David Jones, its 
a misconception lie would like to see 

“Hip-hop is more of a lifestyle, its a 
culture, its social awareness, a collec¬ 
tive consciousness,” Jones said 

The first ever Windsor Hip-hop Mu¬ 
sic Festival staked its daim al Atkin¬ 
son Baric over the weekend The Aug 
29 event went on from morning to 
evening as people went on stage to 
rap beat box, break-dance and above 
all entertain and educate. The objec¬ 
tive wasft just to have a successful 
shew; but to inform people as to what 
hip-hop means and entails. 

was built on positivity. Back in 
1973 it was peace, love, unity and 
safely having fun, and that s what we 

want to bring it back toT Jones said 

The event wanted to flex hiphops 
mused prowess, as well as how it can 
reach and transcend into a way oflv- 
ing through graffiti art, crafts, fashion 
and a sense of community For DJ 
Needle, whds worked on musk for 
years and also hdped co-ordinate the 
festival, it's nothing short of a radiant 

“I love DJing, and the mixing, scratch¬ 
ing, cutting,’* said Needle “Tha6 
what brings hip hop to me and if you 
listen to some of the old school rap¬ 
pers, they were actually talking about 
good tilings* telling you a story, edu¬ 
cating people on certain things* 

Similarly, for barberTyrone Elliott* its 

simply alt-encompassing 

“Its rock and roll, its everything now. 
Its tiie world’ Elliott said 

Throughout the afternoon, public 
turnout had been small, which may 
have been due to some scattered 

showers throughout the day How¬ 
ever, the ccxjrdinators remained un¬ 
deterred however in delivering what 

they believed to be a successful event 

W A lot of people were either hoping 
or expecting us to fail but we refuse 

to MJ 1 said Jones. ‘Were here, we 
started it the stages and the music 
We succeeded already!”

News Editor 

International students at UWmdsor 
had multiple opportunities this sum¬ 
mer toleam more about the area a lot 
of them are preparing to spend the 
r^oftheir lives in. 

In the latest ‘‘Summer at the Barks” 
trip Aug. 25* students from Interna¬ 
tional Student Centre, the Interna¬ 
tional Student Society, the Volunteer 
International Student Assistance 
and guests visited Canada most 
southern point - Point Peiee. The 
trip, hosted by the LSG included a 
walk through the park, pictures at 
the point and a sense of seeing whai 
Canadas parks have to offer. 

Priyanka jaggi, student president of 
the LS.C and one of the event coordi¬ 
nators, said the Hip was just as much 
about making new friends as it was 
about seeing the park. 

W A lot of people don't know about 
Point Pefee and how it is the south¬ 
ernmost part of Canada* so it’s what 
were here to see and something Fm 
hoping the students will find inter¬ 
esting!* said Jaggi Tfs also a good 
chance to make friends from differ¬ 
ent ethnicities here” 

faggi said they haw been making 
tx^ thiOTght^ut the sunmrer ami t^ 
program itselfhas been gotr^f on for a 
few years- A few of the other visits this 
summer were to Jackson Baric, Wil- 
listead Paric and C^ibway Park 

"The trip is not just for international 
students though and that is some¬ 
thing we are trying to publidzetothe 
dornestic students^ said Jaggi “With 
these trips we are trying to introduce 
international and domestic students. 
Our events and outings are not just 
for international students” 

Jaggi said the LS.C was very happy 
with the turnouts tltroughout the 
summer but she would like to see 
more domestic students getting in¬ 
volved with the activities and making 
friends from new countries, 

Tm really glad I was able to make it 
out and meet new people who are 
now my friends," sad Icha Hassani 
a second year biochemistry student 
and a volunteer for the day from the 
ISC, “Its not the sunniest of days but 

Fm still able to enjoy it with friends, 
new and did” 

Many of the students commented 
on having fun making new friends 
throughout the day and the other 
trips held earlier that summer. 

One student said die had never seen 
foe great lakes before even though 
she is going into her second year of 
schooling at UWindsor - 

Tve heard of the Great Lakes from 
text books and seen pictures of them 
but Fve never gotten to experience 
the lakes in person^ said Ling Luo* a 
human resources student and a vol¬ 
unteer from VISA 

Luo and the other VISA members 
present all agreed the trip was a good 
day for them to come out as a group 
and get to know each other because 
they were going to spend the year 
working together. 

Coordinator of VISA, Amy Bui 
said since it was the last day of the 
park visits and a lot of local students, 
such as hetsd£ haven't been to Point 
Befee let alone the international stu¬ 
dents in the group they decided to 
take full advantage of foe day 

"So far weVe done a marsh walk 
where we got to see a lot of plants 
none of us has ever seen before and 
we did a lot of photo shoots too, defi¬ 
nitely some selfies involvedr said Bui 
“We were also able to speak with the 
guide and learn a tot about the differ¬ 
ent insects and life in the park.” 

Bui said for herself and a lot of stu¬ 
dents present there from other coun¬ 
tries, or even just the city* there are a 
lot of things they would have never 
learned or been exposed to without 
a trip like this available. She sakl the 
country life of Canada and the dty 
life are very contrasting and a lot of 
the students will cherish the trips they 
had here. 

Throughout the day the students saw 
see the sights and the wildlife of Point 
Bdbe, tried out the different excur¬ 
sions around the park and ended 
the day with a ride back to Windsor

While the University of Windsor is 
still bracing for die first day of dasses 
and a large student commune, itis 
been business as usual for University 

The live theatre program has been 
hard at work over the summer as 
they begin preparations for the 57th 
season. Similar to last year, the 2015- 
2016 yearwill have six shows ranging 
from adult dramas to comedies for 
all ages. According to School of Dra¬ 
matic Art Director Tina Pugjiese, the 
basis on choosing scripts has a lot to 
do with accommodating fourth year 
drama students who are required to 
have two major roles on stage prior to 
graduating Theres also the matter of 
ensuring they receive training under 
a variety of genres, and finally therek 
the appeal to public reception. 

“There!5 always pleasing the public, 
because it is a subscription series and 
so we usually like to haw a comedy 
and we try to get a Canadian piece 
in there every' year” Pugliese said 
“Sometimes that works out, some¬ 
times it doesn’t but we try to stick to 
that criteria." 

The opener for this season will be 
the Pulitzer Prize winning Anna in 
the Tropic^ written by Nik) Cruz. An 
adult themed drama, it tells the dory 
cf workers in a Cuban-American ci¬ 
gar factory in late 1920s Florida. Poet¬ 
ic at its core, characters’ passions draw 
high as they’re ignited by a lector who 
reads the bode Anna Karenina' to 
the mainly illiterate foctory workers. 
The opening is set for September 25 
at Essex Hall Theatre, with director 
and Univereity Players Chair Gordon 
McCall at the hdm 

“Anna In The Tropics’ pulses with 
a Latin beat Its hypnotic language, 
remarkable characters and immer¬ 
sion into the world of the lost cigar 
factories ofYbor Qty is magically in¬ 
tertwined with the great Russian love 
aoryofTolstoy’sdassic Anna Kareni¬ 
na” McCall said in a statement “The 
play floats through the night tike a hot 
summer Tampa breeze and pulls you 
into its Salsa dancer’s heart UWind- 
sor students will love this play!" 

Actors are currently in rehearsals, 
with the costumes and set design fin¬ 
ished and ready for showtime. Pug- 
liese says fire process of getting ev¬ 
erything in order has gone smoothly 
but one of the things she; hoping 
to achieve is not just in delivering a 

successful season, but to draw in a 
younger crowd 

‘One thing we want to stress every 
year is that we want students com¬ 
ing out to watch students,” Pugliese 
said T think itk an unknown for a 
lot of students. What is it that you do 
there? Where is the theatre? How do 
I get there? I& live theatre, which is 
still something flits generation seems 
to be a little detached firm Were on 
screens, were on our phones, were 
on video games, but engaging in a 
live event is a very different experi¬ 

One way Pugliese would like to draw 
in a student-oriented crowd is by 
reaching out to student organizations 
and make deals to see a show and get 
a couple of extra perks along with 
it, such as free pizza. At any rate she 
would kwe more students to embrace 
the theatre and see what the program 
and its students have to ofler. 

"Were working at getting a younger 
audience and so some of the shows 
we have this season reflect that and 
next season even more so,” Pugliese 
said “So we want to get the young 
people in because its a great experi¬ 
ence and these are young people on 
the stage.” 


Men’s Soccer Sweep Guelph, Brock 
In Opening Weekend Action 


Sports Editor 

The Windsor lancers mens soccer 
team started off their their QUA reg¬ 
ular season perfectly; sweeping both 
ffie Gudph Gryphons and Brock 
Badgers on die mad while not sur¬ 
rendering a single goaL 

Windsor controlled much of fhe play 
against Gryphons Aug 29 conquer¬ 
ing majority of the match. In tire 11th 
minute, Lancers first-year player Ja- 
mar Redhead put his first QUA goal 
past the Gryphons goalkeeper to give 
histeama 1-0 lead 

The Lancers were dominating with 
their possession style of play until 
midway through the second half 
when Windsor was dealt a large How 
as fourth year midfielder lack Sargent 
was issued a red card and subse¬ 
quently ejected from the game. 

Lancers head coach Steve Hart said 
it was a challenge playing the final 25 

minutes with only ten men, but was 
very proud ofhis players ability tode- 
fend and ultimately daim the shutout 

“We were taking chances and unfor¬ 
tunately ended up losing a player, we 
had to reorganized* said Hart. 'They 
were all absolutely gassed at the end 
because they put their bodies on the 
line for those three points, Iheywdi 
deserved itkit it was hard playing for 
the last 25 minute with only IGnrenT 

Lancers keeper Kyle Vkirakis 
stopped all eight shots to shutout file 
Gryplions, who are known to be a 
consistently strong program and fin¬ 
ished third in the QUA last season. 

The nact day, Windsor took on the 
Brock Badgers in St Catherines and 
earned a 3-0 victory. Whats more 
impressive? The Lancers did not al¬ 
low a single shot on goal during the 
match, as keeper Vizirakis and com¬ 
pany posted their second shutout of 
the weekend 

It took the Lancers almost the entire 
first half to get on the scoreboard 
against the Badgers thanks to astrong 
effort from Brock keqrer Matthew 
Zaikos. In the first halfs final minute, 
it would be Tony Falkestajn to break 
through the Brock wall of defense 
and give Windsor a i-G. 

Had the game stayed scoreless after 
file first half Hart said it would have 
been a crime. 

"For file last 15 minute of the first 
half we were absolutely pummding 
them and we just couldrit get it irC 
said Hart “ft was like shades of last 
season but in the end we scored” 

In the second half Lancers rookie 
Leighton Speechley-Price made 
his presence felt in the OUA with 
two goals within five minute First 
Speechky-Price converted on a pen¬ 
alty kick after teammate Mike Pfo 
was fouled within the 2(hyard box. 
Speechky-Prices second goal came 
on a rebound in the 55th minute to 
sea! the Lancers victory and cam a to¬ 

tal of six points in the OUA standings. 

Speeehley-Price, a 6*5” forward from 
Lymington, England said it was a 
great team performance on theweek¬ 
end in some very hot conditions. 

“Everyone was grinding at the right 
times, everyone did wd! and we 
managed the game well ft was a 
team effort*' said Speechley-Price: 
“[Against Guelph], we just simply 
outworked them, the) 7 didn't redly 
create anything clear cut when we 
had lOn^andwejustranoumivej 
into the ground” 

Speechley-Price said Brock was a 
more direct team that gave the Lanc¬ 
ers a lot of resistance in the first half 
Once he was entered into the game, 
Speechley-Price said it was the work 
ofhis teammate which allowed him 
to do what he does best, score goak 

"ft was all work from all of the play¬ 
ers, I was just there to finish it off> 
said Speechley-Price: ft Mike Ho did 
well with drawing the penalty and he 

set me up for the next one so I got to 
thank him for that” 

The Lancers head b^k cm the road 
next weekend to free tire McMaster 
Marauders and York lions on Sept 
5 and 6. Speediley-Price admitted he 
doesrft know much about McMaster 
and York, but what he does know is 
that they are tough teams. 

"They are an exceptional bunch of 
players, York especially? said Speech'

a win against Brock and a loss against 

In a rematch of last seasons first- 
round playoff match against the 
Gudph Gryphons, the lancers were 
unabfe to exorrise their demons from 
a 1-O bssin the playoffs, felling victim 
to a breakaway goal in the 87th min ¬ 
ute and suffering the same one-goal 

Lancers head coach Steve Hart said 
the toss was not due to a lack of efibit 
of tell possession, but an inability to 
score on the Gryphons, 

'*We dominated the game, we ted 
more of the possession until the 87th 
minute when they got a breakaway 
right through die middle and scored," 
said Hart Tfe the old adage, you can 
have all the possessions you want

With die loss to Gudph fresh in their

against Brock and came away with 
a 2-0 win Windsor fielded a young 
team against the Badgers with up to 
four rookies on the field at anytime 
throughout the match. After not 
playing at all against Gudph, first 
year Lancer Iordan Carr had a strong 
game in her OUA debut, playing a 
foil 90 minutes against Brock. 

Carr said it was nerve-racking play¬ 
ing in her first OUA game but once 
the whistle blew, the nerves went 

'The pace is definitely a change than 
what I played before and it’s fun play¬ 
ing with all the girls and on a whole 
new level ” said Carr. “Gcdph was a 
tough loss but we came back together

Tecumseh Thunder Win Sr. Baseball National Championship 


Sports Editor 

The Tecumseh Thunder senior dub 
team had to travel all foe way to Cha¬ 
tham, N.B. for a chance to claim a 
Canadian championship, bra a 4-1 
victory over Quebec Aug 23 made 
up for foe heartbreak of a year prior 
when foe Thunder came iq> short in 
foe title game. 

Thvnder head coach Jamie Kell said 
even though the team they had last 
year was great, they still needed a few 
pieces after coming up short. 

“We had that taste of silver all year? 
said KdL “Right horn our winter 
workouts that was the talk. We tried 
to build the team around our experi¬ 
ence oflast year.” 

With foe national title again car foe 
line, the Thunder would not be de¬ 

Tecumseh started quickly, as catcher 
Eric Cunningham scored in the first 
inning on a wild pitch by Quebec 
starter Francois Lafreniere Mitch 

Delaneys single scored Paul Laman- 
tia in the fourth to make it 2-0. The 

Thunder added two more runs in the 
fifth when Lamantias single scored 

Kevin Mailtoux and Sean Bignall 
came home on another Lafreniere 

wild pitch. 

After dropping foe opening game 

of foe tournament to Quebec 1-0, 
Tecumseh scored 42 runs in file five 

“With foe experience oflast year, we 
knew we couldn’t let foe bats go silent 

In the semi finals, the Thunder were 
12 outs away from elimination. 
Down 1-0 entering foe bottom of the 
fourth inning, Tecumseh exploded 
for 12 runs over the next three in¬ 

nings to rout Fredericton, N.B., 12-2 
and advance to the gold-medal game 

Lamantia, who was named the tour¬ 
naments top hitter, paced foe rally, 
scoring three times and driving in 
five runs, including a grand slam. 
Delaney, who had such a successful 
tournament that he was twice named 
to the all-star team - at first base and 
designated hitter - added three hits 
and two RBIs, as did Ryan Kerstens. 
Thunder shortstop Brandon Gignac 
was also named to the all-tourna¬ 
ment team. 

Gignac was a member ofthe Tecum¬ 
seh Junior team, which won the 21 

and under division Canadian cham¬ 
pionship last seasoa 

“Winning the Senior Canadian 
championship this year was a great 
experience, especially after coming in 
second last year? said Gignac. “Com¬ 
ing up from Juniors is a pretty big 
step, but having more experienced 
guys around made the transition 
easier. Ive played at both levels at the 
Nationals now and you see a lot of 
ex-pros and smarter baseball play¬ 
ers in Senior balL You have to have a 
good approach at every bat, play weC 
defensively every pitch, and play foe 
game the right way? 


Lancers Football Team Falls To 
Mustangs in OUA Opener 


Sports Editor 

It was a rough start to the OUA regu¬ 
lar season for the Windsor Lancers 
football team, as they M to the West¬ 
ern Mustangs 76-7 at Alumni Field 

Lancers head coach Joe DAmore said 
1he loss was not a reflection of the 
kind offcotbaH team Windsor has, 

“Are they a better football team than 
us? Of course they are*’ said DAmore. 
“But are they a 76-7 better football 
team than us* Id like to believe not 
Early on I thought the defense played 
relatively well but offensively, weVe 
got a young group; especially at quar¬ 
terback and we couldn't initiate any 
first downsT 

The visiting Mustangs built a 10-0 
lead just two minutes into the game 
and scored two touchdowns in the 
final minute of the second quarter to 
push their lead to 33-0 at halftime 

'They have one freshmen dressing 
on their roster but other than that 
they're a veteran football team,” said 
DAmore. 'They're running on all 
cylinders and when you’ve got two 
young guys playing quarterback for 
the first time in the OUA, you see the 
jitters and early on we missed some 
throws, had some drops and that puts 
you behind the eight-ban right awayT 

While the Mustangs offense racked 
up over 750 total yards, thdr defense 
held the Lancers to 195 yards and 
also kept the home team off of the 
scoreboard until Tarrence Crawford 
scored Windsor’s lone touchdown at 
2:30 of the fourth quarter. 

Crawford led the Lancm on the 
ground with 73 yards and a TD, 
while kkker Anthony Malandrac- 

cob finished the game with 444 
punting yank Crawford said now 
that Windsor has a game under their 
belt, all of the Lancers can do is lode 
forward to tlieir remaning schedule 

“We have a very young team, a very 
young offenseT said Crawford ‘AD 
we can do is watch the film, see what 
we did wrong and hopefully fix it for 
our next game against Toronto* 

In preparation for a Labour Day 
game against Toronto^ Crawford said 
Windsor s offense simply needs to ex¬ 
ecute at a higher levd 

“We just need to move the ball get 
first downs and score” said Crawford 
“We put our defense on the field a lot 
today so our offense needs to keep 
moving the ball scone, rush the trail 
better, pass the ball better and im¬ 
prove as a team* If we improve as a 
team on offense and defense we’ll be 

For the Mustangs, Alex Taylor led the 
visitors ground attack with 144 yards 

and one touchdown* while receiver 

Matt Uren finished with 104 yards 
and a touchdown 

Lancers rookie safety Spencer Trinier 
had no shortage of playing time or 
production in his OUA debut The 
Herman product recorded a quar¬ 
terback sack, a fumble recovery four 
special tackles and multiple tackles as 
Windsor’s starting safety. In reflection 
on the defenses performance, Trinier 
said they must communicate better 
when adjusting to opposing offenses 

“We got our first test, jumped right 
in headfirst and we played Western 
They are one of the top teams in die 
country let atone the OUAT said 
Trinier, “We see where we match

up and we have to fix and what we 
have to make better, they were a bet¬ 
ter team today but 1 don’t think 76-7 

DAmore added that historically 
tlie Lancers liad been a team which 
started off the season well and faded 
towards th e end of the year. 

"We have to look at it thatway*, may¬ 
be we could be a team that struggles 
early and plays better at the end,” said 
DAmore "We’ve stiD got seven more 
games to be successful I think the 
ntoieyousitanddweflon atosslike 

this foe more itfc going to sit with the 
players* Lets see where we made our 
mistakes and get ready 7 for Toronto”

New Restaurant Looks to Provide 
Students With Hangout Spot 


Mews Editor 

The university has welcomed new own¬ 
ership and taste onto their campus in 
conjunction with the GS& 

Mare Nostrum, a bar and restaurant on 
the comer of Sunset Avenue and Fanch- 
etie Street, is offering a wide selection 
of foods as wefl as their Mediterranean 
specialty including many ghiten free 
and vegan dishes. 

The bar officially opened July 20 and 
is owned by recent university graduate 
Adam El-Dika and Chef Ahmad Sanji* 
who was in culinary school in Lebanon 
for five years. 

“The first thing we decided when we 
opened the restaurant was to make sure 
there is a lot of diversity in the menu," 5 
said El-Dika, “We specialize in Middle 
Eastern dishes, but we also have some 
Italian and Greek pastas as weD as burg¬ 
er and wrap sections on the menu!' 

El-Dika said ever since the dosing of the 
Thirsty Scholar Pub on campus a few 
years ago the school has been missing 
a place where students, jkmfty and staff 
can come har^ out and grab something 
to eat He said he hopes Mare Nostrum 
restaurant can fin that void 

The restaurant has an indoor capacity 
of 71 and also has a patio which can 
hold M* The smaller verne has not off 
put business though, as El-Dika said 
the restaurant has been busier than he 

could have expected - especially since 
the school year had not started yet 

‘Its totally unexpected but this past 
week has been insane and we've literal¬ 
ly filled up every table inside and ouC 
said El-Dika, ‘‘This past Friday we got 
to the point where we had to turn away 
aistomers. Some of them took take-out 
but the amount of people that have been 
coming in is more than we could have 

Mare Nostrum lias been featured on 
GBC their tweets have been seen and 
re-tweeted by the Windsor Econom¬ 
ic Development Group and has been 
partnering with university 1 groups to 
promote the business. El-Dika said 
getting the name out there is one of the 
most important things. 

According to El-Dika, expansion is 
something they have not yet considered 
as it is only the first few wedb of busi¬ 
ness. However they have begun take- 

out and off* campus delivery however on 
top of updatir^ their delivery services to 
be more affordable for students, Mare 
Nostrum is also revampir^ their menu 
to accommodate large groups with 
sharing platters and a few' more menu 

Everything chi the menu is under $10 
except for new sharing platters, which 
will be added to the menu. For more 
information check out their Eacebook 
page and website.

manner Very dose by however, there

far from die first time where a graffiti 
nightwas held on campus, but the night 

brought forth a new ediaboratkm be¬

establishment Pub Guh which opened 
over the summer break This was a way 
for students to simply have fon on top 
of mingling with the student body and 
future classmates, 

‘Students who are new to Windsor,

"At our spot we hire a lot of university

University Encourages Consent 
with New Sexual Assault Policy 

Dr Rachel Griffin shares herpersonal story to raise awareness 


News Editor 

The University of Windsor has recently 
updated their policy on sexual assault 
and the actions to be taken if it happens 
on campus. 

In light of this* they have started to raise 
awareness on the grounds as early as day 
one, when resident students moved in* 
Through this they hope to avoid any 

According to Dr Rachel Griffin, the 
schoofs new policy will not eliminate 
die problem kit it will help some cases 
of it and also hdp the survivors who go 
through it 

Tm here because of die three billion 
women on this planet right now one* 
third of us will be abused, beatsi or 
raped in their lifetime,'* said Griffin 
‘"That means we could fill up the Rog¬ 
ers Centre in Toronto, with a capadtv of 
54,000 over 18,000 times with women 
who have been akrsed, beaten or forced 
to have sex.” 

with rape and how she thought because 
of her circumstances and who the per¬ 
son who took advantage of her, no one 
would bdieve her or think it was true. 
She said it took her seven years to fi¬ 
nally tdi someone after a sexual assault 

"Ninety-nine percent of the time perpe¬ 
trators of sexual assault are male, how¬ 
ever, adaxwdedging that statistic is not 
mak-bashing rather it is a painful re¬ 
ality of our amtemporary soaeiyf said 
Griffin "I need you to know that most 
men do not hurt women but most men 
know men who do* 

Griffin said her hope for the campus 
and the outside area m for people to 
learn to use their voice when they see 
or hear of any type of abuse on a global 
scale She also encouraged people who 
have been hurt to come forward and let 
someone know they need hdp. 

"Victims of sexual violence deserve to 

be treated with cam with compassion 
and with respect - no exception^” said 
Griffin. "We can choose to understand 
that silence is not an option and words 
are not enough* Action is required” 

Griffin asked the members present to 
create a campus where people are com¬ 
fortable to come forward and talk with¬ 
out worrying of judgement 

Griffin expressed people should want 
“enthusiastic consent" 1 over taking ad¬ 
vantage of someone else. 

Dt Clayton Smith, vice provost and 
dean of student affairs, said the wom¬ 
en who experience sexual violence will 
have it happen before, after or during 
their post-secondary education He said 
the new policy is to hdp avoid or hdp 
with situations during the post-second¬ 
ary experience 

“What if we hdp the bystanders become 
active” said Smith. “We bought m an 
idea from the University ofNew Hamp¬ 
shire stating if we train our students in 
particular.* * to stop these things bom 
happening, it would hdp m deal with 
the statistics of sexual assault” 

Smith said this was done in 2010 and 
they have made decisions to train stu¬ 
dents including running courses in 
several frailties and resident hafls, and 
doing research which he said makes a 

"Last year around this time, we had four 
instances ofsexualviolence on our cam¬ 
pus in the first weekT said Smith. "One 
of the instances resulted in suspending 
a student firm the university on arrival 

Smith said following this a draft policy 
was created and a working group was 
established, which he chairs in, and they 
are pushing it this year Smith said he is 
hoping for the policy to be reviewed and 
completed by the end of this edrcation 

Smith said educating the campus body 
will hdp with the problem and that a

"We worked hard in the spring months 
to try and get Dr. Griffin to come and 
speak here** said Smith 

“A lot of people questioned why we 
would have her speak on opening 
day and I tell them because that’s 
the time sexual violence can start” 

Smith said he% very grateful Dr Griffin

to what was an already exhausting day 
for new and returning students, they 
had the importunity to kickback as the 
sun went down and a screen was pro¬ 
jected up. 

Towards the evening, the residence 
quad served as the area to hold the out¬ 
door movie night, which is hdd every 
year during the welcome week for free. 
The night was geared towards first year 
students who wanted to take the chance 
to wind down and relax while watching 
the two films screened: "Mean Girls and 
'Despicable Me 

"We actually locked up what are the top 
movies for people in this age range and 
Mean Girls' was number one. like

a stress-free event where students can 
connect within their communities, as 
the event was free to everyone on or off 
campus. She also emphasized it was a

Hot dagp and burden were being 
cooked in the midst of the moving day 
frenzy and it was all fora valiant cause. 

In between the Cartier and Vanier res¬ 
idence buildings die Shinerama bar- 
beque was parked and underway as 
Shine Day finds itself on the horizon. 
Shinerama is the largest post-second¬ 
ary fundraiser in the nation, with over 
60 different colleges and universities as 
acting participants. AD proceeds hum 
the baibeque go towards the UWindsor 
Shinerama campaign* which in turn do¬ 
nates to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 

'Cystic fibrosis is die most common fe¬ 
tal genetic disorder affecting young Ca¬ 
nadian^ said organizer Jessica TetreaulL 
"Everything that we da all die money 
we raise is going direedy to binding a 
cure or control, and were getting really 
dose so its a really erafing time to be 
involved with Shinerama”

treanlt is gunning for is to have a strong 
presence of LlWindsor students both in

2015 NAB A Championships 
Brings Thousands to Windsor 


Sports Editor 

Windsor sm^d host to thousands of 
Filipinos from across the globe where 
a love of basketball an increased sense 
of camaraderie, unity, culture and corn- 
rnunity pride took centre stage at the 
2015 North American Basketball Tour¬ 

The Windsor Bridgeans took on the 
immense task of organizing the annual 
Labour Day weekend event as almost 
a dozen venues were used to schedule 
neariy 150 teams in five different divi¬ 
sions for the doubJe-eliinination tour¬ 

Windsor Bridgeans is a not for profit, 
Filipino basketball program in Wind¬ 
sor established in 2011 by two brothers* 
Reggie and Russ Salazar who save as 
co-directors alongside Gilbert Gallant 
What first began with only one team, 
now boasts teams in ail five tourmmert 
divisions indudk^ bantam, juvenile. 

open menfe, open ladies and masters. 

Reggie Salazar spoke with gratitude 
when he praised the support of count* 
less hard-workii^ committee membm 
which has allowed the Bridgeans to 
blossom into a basketball organization 
able to host and execute the NABA 
tournament so flawlessly despite the 
event coming to Windsor for foe first 
timesmoe 199L 

'Windsor has set high standards in 
providing our guests with comfortable 
acmmmodattons, improved venues, 
energetic games and hospitality” said 
Salazar ‘We as a group organized for 
over one year, we have made every dfort 
to provide our NABA guests with an ex¬ 
perience that will be truly memorable” 

The name “Bridgearts” was established 
by Gil Panganibaa who also founded 
the North American Basketball As¬ 
sociation. Fanganibaris hometown in 
foe Philippines is connected by bridge 
where he traveled to see his IriendsaaKi 
play basketball Bridgeans was deemed 

for foe Windsor Filipino team 
because the Ambassador bridge in the 
city is a such wefi-known structure and 
is meant to symbolize a road to aspira¬ 

Salazar said besides the athletic compe¬ 
tition, the tournament provides an op¬ 
portunity for people of Filipino descent 
from around the world to meet one 
another and embrace fodr culture and 

“By putting on a showcase like this, it 
shows what Windsor is aB abouC said 
Salazar 'This is definitely a huge com¬ 
munity effort to put this together, being 
at so many different venues, it takes so 
many different individual efforts to 
make this a success'* 

Each year foe NABA tournaments are 
located in different Canadian and US

sissauga and Detroit NABA has proven 
to be the largest Filipino invitational

To the Filipino community in gener¬ 
al Salazar said foe NABA Labour Day 
tournament is a highlit of foe year for 
some families. 

It means a lot to us to have this event? 
said Salazar. ‘We dorit have many 
events Ifc this but when we do this on a 
yearly basis, it brings everyone together, 
it brings camaraderie, unity and support

Remembering the 
Horrors of Wes Craven 


Arts Editor 

Wes Graved filmography is not the 
most distinguished. Nobody can doubt 
the dassdcs under his bek, but they ar¬ 
rived too far in between to call him a 
consistent filmmaker. So when news 
broke ofhis death on August 30th, initial 
reaction was fairly passive. But perhaps 
ifc a rather cold thing to say, even if he 
was never one of my favourite directors* 
For upon further examination, credit 
must be given where ife due 

Films are lovely works of art, but theres 
something special when it comes to the 
honor genre Then& a levd of crafts' 
manship and technique required to 
make an eflbctivdy unsettling expe¬ 
rience. At times you even need a bit of 
resourcefulness and panache, where 

you know the material you have can be 
made into something goldea This no¬ 
tion could be why the genre is mainly 
void of quality and instead oversftiflfod 
with lazy efforts. A good honor film 
released now could constitute as a great 
one given the apparent drought So with 
the loss of Wes Craven, honor is in a 
state of honor as it tidy lost one of its 
leading figures. 

Hera a fun feet Prior to Gravers feature 
dd^ he was working asapom director 
under a series of difiereot aliases. It was 
in 1972 when he made his mark with 
Tire Last House on the Left Filmed 
with a budget of less toan $90,000, the 
film ended up being censored in many 
countries due to its graphic depiction of 
violence and sexual assault 1 wasahor- 
rar film absent ofa monster or some un¬ 
known entity as a villain. The monsters 

were escaped convicts and hardened 
killers, and the film showcased a degree 
ofvidence, which is deeplyunsetftingto 
this day due to how real it fdt and how it 
has the potential in beingareality While 
the film now is rather jarring due to its 
musical score, it stiD succeeds in bring¬ 
ing a chill down the spine of the viewer 

Twelve years later, Craven brought what 
is undoubtedly his most popular film: 
A Nightmare on Elm Street! On top 
of having the audacity to give a young 
Johnny Depp an awfully Woody fete, the 
film femously messed around with the 
perceptions and expectations of its an- 
dioice. ft did so in a highly imaginative 
way As Freddy Kruger terrorized chfl- 
dren by killing them in their dreams, the 
film blurred the line between wh^ was 
real and what wasn’t Craven also con¬ 

ceived a highly distinct villain in Kruga- 
himself by providing him a personali¬ 
ty, which was remarkably captured by 
Robert Engjunds performance 

Then oddly enough. 12 years after 
TTightman* he made what was arguably 
his last great film with ‘Saeam During 
the greater half of the 1990s, the honor 
genre was looking to be on its death¬ 
bed sentenced to an eternity of obscu¬ 
rity via direa-to-video B-movies. With 
■Scream there came a dever take on the 
genre as the films characters came with 
knowledge of honor films. They at¬ 
tempted to use the knowledge to escape 
toe tenor caused by the villain Ghost- 
face, ft was a gamble, which paid off as 
horror found an unlikely companion 
in comedy It hdped revive the genre, 
whkh was so dose on its way out toe 
door by seamlessly merging biting satire 

with a tense slasher fikk 

Ife hard to say where toe genre would 
be today had it not been for Cravens 
involvement Perhaps there may have 
been a lack of audience subveraon, and 
i is possible the envelope for violence 
wouldn't have been pushed to the same 
extent At any rate, bis contribution is 

Hes not without some stinkers of 
course. The sequels to “Scream never 
readied toe same kvd of quality as the 
original. There was an ift-foted misfire 
m Vampire in Brooklyn and ‘My Soul 
to 'Bke* was )ust plain awful Bur when 
he was on point, be delivered an expert- 
ence very few fitmimkers could match, 
whkh is why hell live on through his 
wodc for years to come

Sports Editor 

Afiera tough stretch of four matches on 
die road to be^n the regular season* the 
Lancers soccer program is calling for 
large crowds during ife homeHspener 
weekend against the Waterloo Warriors 
and Laurier Golden Hawks, 

A pair of home games is just what title 
Lancers need after a pair of weekend 
mad trips yielded mixed results. This 
past weekend* the Lancer womens soc¬ 
cer team dropped both g^mes on their 
road trip to the McMaster Marauders 
and York lions* while die mens team 
came away with a sense of lost oppor¬ 
tunity after a 2-i loss to the 2015 CIS 
national runner-up Marauders and a 
2-2 draw against the 2015 QS national 
champions, the Lions, 

Sept 5 the women dropped a tight !-0 
loss to the Marauders before felling 2-1 
to York Sept 6. The women are now 
1-3 heading into thdr first set of home 
games next weekend 

Lancers head coach Stew Hart said al¬ 
though the women have played wdl in 
stretches over the first four matches* it is 
consistency that the team is stiD hoping 
to achieve, 

"Wdre still trying to figure ii ouC said 

fkut "We draft deserve to oome away 

fiom these games wife no points in the 
standing! On another d^> we could 
have gottm better results.” 

Against the Marauders* fee two teams 
looked even in the opening half as each 
was able to craft its for share of scoring 
opportunities Windsor's best scoring 
chance of fee half came in fee 31st min¬ 
ute,when Lancer midfielder Pattens Ste¬ 
phens heavy shot just soared wide offee 
home sicfesfar post 

Nine minutes later, it was the hosts who 
found the gatnds evening tally as Maila 
Gaiboni netted the pmek lone goal by 
chestk^ down a bouncing ball in the 
boot* tumii^ and firing a well-placed 
shot into the top comer of the Wind¬ 
sor net Thai would be the only goal 
of match as the Marauders came away 
wifea 1-G victory. 

Hart said Windsor s start was much too 
slow to keep up wife McMaster, who is 
a top program in the OUA. 

“This is a benchmark ^me because 
they are always up there,” said Hart “We 
made a lot of rookie mistakes in the first 
halfbut made our halflime adjustments 
and played much better in the second 

On Sunday the first half saw fee Lions 
control fee pace of the game by domi¬ 
nating fee possession of fee ML The 
Windsor women regrouped at halftime 
and came out stronger in the final for¬ 
ty-five minute. 

In fee 54th minute in fee second half 
the Lancers opened the scoring wife a 
tally poked by York goalkeeper Taylor 
Giant after a de&nsbre breakdown that 
led to an odd-man advantage in the di¬ 
rection of Yoiks net, ultimately leading 
to fee opening goal by Lacey Marooux 

Yorks Nour Ghoneim scored the equal¬ 
izer in the 62nd minitfe ate York drew 
a a>ntruversial foul inside the 20-yard 

box. Ghoorim stepped up and placed 
fee ball into the right hand comer of 
fee net, which was just out of the reach 
of sprawling Windsor keeper Krystin 

York freshman Kiyani Johnson came on 
in the second half to score the Lions go- 
ahead goal in fee 72nd minute to take 
fee lead for good Windsor pressed late 
for fee equalizer but was unable to capi¬ 
talize on their opportunities. 

Hart said the teams character during fee 
loss was admirable, but fee youth of fee 
team was evident in the pair of weekend 

,v We had four or five rookies at a time on 
fee ptech, which is great progress for the 
program," said Hart "We were attacking 
teams while we were down but we don’t 
want to hit our peak one week and go 
through ^ valley fee next Consistency is 
what we want to see and feat is our job 
as coaches,” 

The mens team was able to escape wife 
one point aver fee weekend against two 
of the top four ranked teams in Cana¬ 
da, Windsor is now 2-1-1 on the season 
as they head into their first home games 
of2015 againstWfoterioo 

A^inst the Marauders, Windsor start¬ 
ed vey skw and that resulted in a 2-0 
deficit at halftime against fee Na4 

ranked team in fee CIS. 

“We played awful in the first half said 
Hart “The men knew how we felt as 
coacheswhenwe spoke to them at half¬ 
time In the second half we were unable 
totie it up even though we were all over 
them for the last 10 to 15 minutes!' 

In fee end, it was too Me, too late as ly- 
owuna Jumbo scored in fee 84fe min¬ 
ute to cut fee deficit in haifbutWindsor 
would score no more, Ming 2-1 and 
dropping fedr first game of the OUA 
regular season. 

The next day saw Windsor matched 
up against die defending CIS nation¬ 
al champions from York. Both teams 
played an aggressive style coupled with 
crisp ball movement, solid defensive 
strategy and stout goalkeepmgbut each 
side tallied a goal to make the score 1-1 
at halftime 

The Lions opened the scoring in the 
35th minute when Matt Stinson re¬ 
ceived a toudi pass just outside the 
20-yard box which Stinson capitalized 
on and shot past Windsor goalkeeper 
Kyle Vizirakk In the 42nd minute fee 
Lancers attacked fee Lions midfield and 
launched a deep shot that was totally 
saved but a large rebound allowed the 
Lancers to capitalize when Leighton 
Speechky-Price teqpped the batt in for 
bis third goal of the season 

Windsor took a 2-1 lead in fe e 70fe on 
some fency footwork and finishing abil¬ 
ity from Pio to set u^ 
finish Goalkeeper Vizirakis stood on 
his head againstYork, making save after 
save during the waning minutes of the 
match but he and the Lancers defence 
couldn’t withstand the pressure of the 
Lions offence as they allowed the tying 
goal by )arek Whiteman with less than 
two minutes remaining. 

Despite fee quality of the opponent. 
Hart was candid in thoughts about tying 
fee defending national champions. 

Tve never felt so sick after tying YodC 
said Hart “And to be mad about tying 
fee national champions speaks about 
our program and where it has oome 
Both trams battled but we canoniykxk 

Hart said the result against York has 

prompted rival coaches to acquire film 
of fee match to try and copy Windsor^ 

“They're all asking me how we have 
done if said Hart “This just proves that 
we don't need to be scared of anybody. 
Any of the top four teams in the OUA 

Windsor will play their first home 
games of fee season this coming week- 
aid when they host the Waterloo War- 
riots and Laurier Golden Hawks. The 
Yfenkxs come to town Sept I I while 
fee Hawks head down the 401 Sept 13. 


Video Game Review - Metal 

Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 


Arts Editor 








PS4, XBO, PC, PS3, X360 

Those whoVe delved in their fair share 
of video games have probably heard of 
Metal Gear Solid either by passing or 
through firsthand experience. Its in- 
ventive, convoluted, and downright in¬ 
sane at times. Yet it has managed to be 
an oddly profound military saga and a 
stunning action/stealfo series ever since 
its traiHazing 199$ debut. 

With ‘Metal Gear Solid V; The Phan¬ 
tom creator Hkfeo Kbjima m un- 

^^-^Sfotedly maridng it as the series* swan 
sting. One would think therdfl be some 

amount of deviations Phantom Pain 
makes from die series' game play and 
narrative tropes brings a title which 
stands tall on its own while still retaining 
the essence of the series, 

The nooks and crannies of the Metal 
Gear story would require its own index. 
Those who go in blind will be lost as to 
who the characters are, and will fell to 
understand the context of numerous 
plot points. In the simplest of terms, it 
tells the final chapter of legendary mer¬ 
cenary Big Boss and how his quest for 
revenge leads to his steep moral dedine, 
bringing the saga to full duck This 
journey towards revenge leads you to 
building a private army so you can strike 
back against the organization known as 

Pleasure From the Pain 

Cipher From die tense hour long pro¬ 
logue to foe mature sifojed: matter being 
portrayed, it carries a much darker tone 
than its predecessors. 

Earlier enHies in the series were heavy 
on semantics, with game play consist¬ 
ing of linear sequences which gave you 
plenty of tools to outsmart your ene¬ 
mies. The audio/visual presentation 
for every tide has been top notch The 
Phantom Pain is no exception as die 
gamdi FGXengtoe faaroaringtedmkal 

But this entry deviates bom the formula 
in several ways. Instead of reliance on 
cut-scenes, foe narrative largely rests in 
conversations recorded between key 
characters. More recording become 
available the further you progress in foe 
story, but the choice otTistening fells into 
foe player. Instead of tightly structured 
game play jxjtire given a sandbox to 
play in as youl be going hack and forth 
between foe desert in Soviet-ocoped 
Afghanistan and foe African savannah. 
You undergo a great wealth of missions 
and operations, and more importantly 
youre given carte blanche in bow you 
WWBIl * " ■ W I,, B * 

Lets say you stumble upon a fortress 
crawling with Soviet troops. You re to 
find and extract a prisoner. You can go 
far a completely stealthy approach, us¬ 
ing nothing but a tranquilizer gun as 
you carefaUy mark your enemies and 
pinpoint the prisons focatiorL Or you 
could take the opposite route and go 
in blazing, moving fest with everyone 
knowir^ your location Better yet, why 
not raise havoc without anybody know¬ 
ing you're there? Cali in an air strike to 
create a diversion cm one end while you 
sneak and extract from the other. Or 
ym could always just pick off the troops 
from a far out vanl^e point, all while 
listening to Hall and Oates' ‘Maneater* 
Tlebd Yeff from Billy kid or several 

other 80s trad© which are located across 

the game world via cassette tapes, 

are wekumed e vsn 

if certain missions may encourage one 
over another. Enemies are intellig en t 
enough to pose as a legitimate threat 
during sneaking sections, keeping you 
on your toes. But with enough skill and 
foe right tools, they can be exploited 
through comk and unconventional 
methods. What makes the sandbox 
design admirable is bow it doesn't be¬ 
come bogged down with half-baked 
side activities which tend to plague most 
open world gimes, Ihe world is used 
as a driving force to deeply enhance the 
aetion/steafth game play which is and 
always has been a series hallmark, 

AD of what you do on foe fidd con¬ 
tributes towards building your Mother 
Base The people you extract, the mon¬ 

ey you make from missions and foe 
resources you obtain during missions, 
They all go towards further developing 

your base into a M-iledged militaiy 
complex, complete with numerous de¬ 
partments Ks also a way to develop vast 
amounts of weapons and equipment, 
as well as further enhance foe soldiers 
you have under your command These 
devetopments directly contribute to foe 
core game {day as they lead to more op¬ 
tions in how you pursue later misacms 
Periodically visting the base itself is also 
an important factor as it maintains staff 
morale as weB as Big Boss'own physical 
and mental state. The game is successful 
in making you actually fed like the fead- 

erofa top private military form 

While not without some minor flaws, 
theyre dwarfed by the. p within 
the core action/steaMi game play and 
foe comprehensive grand design which 
supports it Itmmiages tobeccFnristentiy 
exciting, and an inherently personal ex¬ 
perience which demands to be played 
The Phantom Pain gives you a near un¬ 
precedented amount to woric with, and 
foe best thing about it is how ife all uti¬ 
lized fells into foe player's hands. They 
are able to dictate foe pace of the game 
play and the narrative. No two expert- 
axes wiB ever be the same, malting it 
compulsively playable. 

Movie Review - Mad Max: Fury 

Summer’s ‘Maddest’ Movie 


News Editor 

This summer brought some major hits 
to thebig screen but one stood out tome 
more than any other 

'Mad Max: Fury Boa d> the Austra¬ 
lian-based post-apocalyptic sd-fi, began 
screening eariy this summer on May 
15 and took a lot of old fens and new¬ 
comers to the series by surprise. The 
hgh-octane feature had an aH-star cast, 
a beautiful setting and a deeper than 
apparent plot which told a new and dd 

Director of the original trilogy ended in 

1985, George Miller, again took re^ns 
of the new project Replacing the orig¬ 
inal Max, Mel Gibson, was actor Tom 
Hardy Hardy a man <rf few words in 
the film* portrays the perfect Max with 
a deeper sense of emotion portrayed 
throughferial features, grants and flash¬ 

The film starts ctf with Max bemgc^ 
tured by cuft members of the War Boys 
led by Immortan foe played by Hugh 
Klesys-Byme After being tied up and 
treated as a human Wood-sac far foe 
War Boys, Max escapes and teams up 
with a group of unlikely castaways in¬ 
cluding Imperator Furiosa played by 
Charfee Iheran, and five of Immortan 

Joes wives. 

Together they attempt to escape on the 
Wfer Rig! which is a custom designed 
death truck, used to transport oil and 
commit mass homicide Together, with 
a very unirusting mood set towards one 
another, the group heads out to find a 
land tabled to be fit for sustainir^ life: 

"Mad Max! Fury Road tefls the story erf 
a madman sentenced to fear nothing 
other than his past, himself and getting 
boo dose to others. The muted Hardy 
portrays an attitude of sdf-sustainability 
and brakenness, Through quick flash* 
backs, we see glimpses of Maxs life and 
how it b to be believed he became the 

way he was. 

Mix the psychotic killer in with a War 
Bo^s leader, Immortan foes wives and a 
War Boy loyal, you get acrew as crazy as 
foe protagonist 

The fast-pace and comedy in the movk 
keep you on edge for foe fiil two hours. 
With no breathing breaks, foe film at¬ 
tacks you with violence car chases and 
awesome vehicles only foe Mad Max 

team could offer. 

When I first watched the film, I was on 
edge foe wbde time either laughing or 
dealing with constant exotemerrt; sad* 
ness and other mixed emotions. 

The film, although not far the feint of 
hart, offers everything a good movie 
should have and more. It is one of the 
bestfilms released rn a long time. 


What’s in Store for UWindsor 
Campus Sports This Year 

Women’s Soccer 

Hie Lancer womoi soccer program 
looks to continue their strong perfor¬ 
mance from 2014 The women hosted 
a home playoff game after finishing the 
season with an 8-7-1 record to place 
fourth overall in the OUA West A 
heartbreaking oma-tiraelossto 
in the 6m round has left the l.ancers 
hungry for continued success in the teg¬ 
ular aiKl postseason* 

Windsor brings in a strong group of 
focal recruits which I.ancen» director of 
soccer operations and head coach Steve 
Hart hopes will make an immediate im¬ 
pact on the fidd Four members of tbs 
LaSalle Stampers join the Hue and gold 
including midfielder Paiten Stephens as 
wdl as defenders Keelv Baggio, Jordan 
Carr and Daiuelh Vafente. 

Tecumsehs Brittany CM from the 
Michigan Gators will pin the Lancers 
in the backfidd, while Kristin Mdoof 
the Bastade Kkkm will play midfield 
Additional recruits include Toronto® 
Jcnysas Gordon and transfer Lacey 
Marcotix from Notre Dame College in 

In addition to these esoting reouifcs,the 
Lancer women return veterans Laura 
Lecce and Meg Roberts to anchor the 
bade and will be rdkd on heavily Along 
with these key comributcHs»QuIkBari- 
fe, Cam Qrovskiand Tess Roberts in the 
mid field and Krystin Lawrence in net, 
the Lancers will prove to be a difficult 
challenge to anyone in the league 

After a disappointing L-0 loss to the 
Guelph Gryphons in thdr opening 
march, the women nfoounded and took 
a 2-0 win against the Brock Badgers 
The not weekend, the women would 
be unable to come away with a point 
against the McMaster Marauders or 
York lions despite a strong effort 

"‘On another day, we could have gptet 
better results with the effort we put in 
against McMaster and YorkT said Hart 
iBut these are benchmark games be¬ 
cause those programs are always up at 
the top of the OUA and to be the best, 
youVe got to beat the best." 

The Waterloo VtoTiors come to town 
for Windsors home-opener match at 
Alumni Rdd Sept II and the women 
will kick-off the night with thdr match 
at 6 pm before battling the Lanrier 
Golden Hawks Sept 13 to an afternoon 
mat* 1 at 1 pm 

Men’s Soccer 

The Lancer men are exdted to start 
what looks like a promising year after an 

intense training camp and preseason. 
After posting an 8-7-1 record in 2014 
the Lancers will look to improve on 
those numbers and make a push to be 
at the top of the OUA 

With a strong incoming class led by re¬ 
cruits Noah Ffo, Jamar Redhead* Ldgh- 
ton James Speechfey-Price, and Marcus 
Diloreto, head coach Steve Hartbdteves 
tiiey are capable of improving on last 
years fifth place finish 

"We have some exciting talent m the 
roster this season,'' said Hart "We per¬ 
formed extremely well m our recent 
pre-season road trip and game against 
Ciodaro, giving a very mature and orga¬ 
nized performance, and I am confident 
we can have a successful year” 

The key to the Lancers success this sea¬ 
son will be die contribution of captain 
and OUA all-star Tack Sargent, as the 
fourth year midfiekier brings a great 
deal of strength and leadership both on 
and off the field Along with Sargent, 
the Lancers will depend on fifth year 
forward Mike Bo and second year raid- 
fiddar Chris ALYoussef to hdp build 
the foundation of the tom alongside 
fourth year forward fyuwum Jumbo 
and defensemen Tony Bdkenstajn and 

Harts recruiting dass has proved to be 
successful so for as Redhead provided 
the lone goal in a season opening win 
against the Gudph Gryphons while 
Speechley-Price scored twice in a 3-0 
win over the Brock Badgers. 

litis past weekend, the men took on 
the McMaster Marauders and York 
lions, both of which were in the 2014 
CIS national finals. A sfoppy T first half re¬ 
sulted in a 2 -0 deficit at the break but an 
improved effort in the second allowed 
fiie Lancers to get one goal back in the 
84lh minute, but were unable to get file 
equalizer The next day the Lancers 
trailed 1-0 before Speediley- Price put 
home his third goal of the season in the 
42nd and veteran Mike Pk> gave Wind¬ 
sor file lead in the 70th minute on an 
individual effort 

ft looked as though Windsor would 
come away with a victory over the na¬ 
tional champions but in the waning 
minutes of the second halt the im¬ 
mense pressure the lions put on the

in Casey Wright and rodoe Dam Putt

ing interest by youth in Wmdsor-Essex 
County 7 coupled with the coordination 
efforts by ERCA staffand otha-resourc¬

with area youth over the years. 

“It encourages youth to engage others^

A rivalry almost as old as the Ontar¬ 
io Hockey League became new once 
again as the Windsor Spitfires beat the 
Hint Firebirds in odiibition actba 

Spitfires centie Logan Brown scored his 
second goal of the preseason on a three- 
way passing play late in the third period 
and Cristiano DOarinto scored into 
an empty net to seal a 4-2 Spitfires win 
in rookie goaftender Michaud DiPtetrofe 
first career abearance 

It was first year Spitfires coach Rocky 
Thompsons fim win behind the bench 
in Windsor and said it was important 
tor Ibe team and fen base to see a victory 
after a 4-2 loss to the Oshawa Generals 
the previous night 

“There was more passion in our game, 
more of a kind of bite” 1 said Thompson. 
*We were ready to stand up for eadi 
other which was nice and were ready to 
do what it took to win the game tonight 
We made some gpod plays late ~. It wasa 
kind of gutsy so it was nice to see” 

A crowd of 3,585 took in the preseason 
aflairSepL 6y for the Firebirds first visitto 
Windsor, who moved to Flint in the off¬ 
season after a long tenure as the Plym¬ 
outh Whalers. The Spitfires-Whalers 
rivalry was not forgotten at Gompu- 
ware Arena but rather rekindled, as 
both teams each scored in a last-paced 

first period with plenty ofphysicaiity. 

After Firebird forward Cullen Mercer 
opened die scoring with a backhand 
shot over the shoulder of Spitfires start¬ 
er Michael DiPietro, it was Windsors 
Daniil Verity took Cde Carter^ feed 
from behind the Firebirds net and 
scored quickly to even the score at 1-1 
after 2D minutes. 

The Spitfires killed a two-minute five- 
on-three power pky opportunity for the 
Firebirds eariy in the second period Tile 
penalty kill unit was perfect on the day, 
thwarting all four Hint man-advantag¬ 
es. Thompson said the Spitfires special 
teams had very little preparation head¬ 
ing into the game but adjusted wdl the 
verbal commands fora Windsor assis¬ 
tant coach Trevor Letowski 

"We haven’t reaBy had time to practice 
special teams at afl ~ but the guys adapt¬

The Windsor Lancers find themselves 
in an 0-2 hole to begin the QUA regular 
season after a one-point loss to the To¬ 
ronto Varaty Blues on Labour Day 

Windsor^ 8-7 setback at Varsity Centre 
featured no touchcfowns and was the 
fust time the Blues had defeated the 
Lancm since 2QGL Now Windsor will 
look for their first win of the year when 
the Carieton Ravens visit the Lancers 
at Alumni Field Sept 12 with a 1 pm 

T thought the guys pkyed better than 
a^inst Western but we just need to 
move forward," said Lancers head coach 
Joe DAmore. "Were 0-2, dials the real¬ 
ity of it We have a really good team in 
Carieton coming in, they're young but 
are pkying better and better every year 
so were going to have to pky a real good 

DAmore said the game against the 
Blues was a tale of two halves - the first 
of which saw the Lancers pky wdl and 
show offensive progression while the 
second only saw the team struggle to 

move the ball and watch a 6-3 halftime 
lead turn into an 8-7 loss. 

“In the first half we had over250 yank of 
offence, we ran the ball really wdl, com¬ 
pleted some passes and did some thin^ 
that we likeT said DAmore We stalled 
in the second halt we saw some of our 
yotflh again making mental mistakes 
and not making the right reads at file 
quarterback position We had receivers 
running the wrong routes, making bad 
deriskms and we only had 70 yards of 
offense in the second half 

Fourth year running back Tkreoce 
Crawford kd the Lancers with 105 
rushing yards on 15 carries and 38 yards 
reoeivii^ Quarterback Casey Wright 
finished the game connecting on 15- 
for-27 passes for 126 yards and one in¬ 
terception in his first foil game asWind¬ 
sor's starter. 

First year running bade Jtydon Gauth¬ 
ier tallied 107 all purpose yards on 13 
carries, five receptions and one kkkoff 

A combination of two field goals and 
a safety equalled up the dghi points 
allowed by Windsors defensive unit 
against Toronto but DAmore said it will 

need another strong defensive showing 
against the Ravens, who are very afiifetic 
offensively and have one of the best re¬ 
ceivers in the OUA in Nate Behar. 

“I thought the defense did wdl by only 
giving up eight points because when 
you do that, you usually have a chance 
to winT said DAmore “AH in all they are 
going to have to come out and play a real 
strong game against Cadetem” 

DAmore said the offense wifl need to 
continue to progress and have the abil- 
ity to score multiple toudidowns to stay 
within striking distance 

“Weneed to finda way to play fourqmr- 
ters on the offensive side of the ball and 
try to find some answers,* said DAmore 
T think ift important that this game is at 
home, I think & important for the kids 
to want to redeem themselves from our 
last home game" 

Carieton is H to start the third year of 
the program^ resurgence in 2013. After

it will encourage people to stand up and

Students fora abroad kraking for work 
will have an easier time doing so with 
fe help ofa new initiative: 

Service Canada came to the interna- 
tional Student Centre Sept 17 to make 

a temporary Sodai Insurance Number 
(SIN) dime Since June of last year* full- 
time international students have been 
eligible to work in Canada and obtain 
a SIR Initially they had to go aD the 
way downtown with their passport and 

study documents to gain the number, 
however this process expedites the step 
and makes things convenient for stu¬ 
dents like Haiti ZayaL 

my schedule,” Zayaf said Tm trying to 
fit my schedule and find a part-time job 
but I haven't had the time to go around” 

A Service Canada agent was present 
durir^ the process and was overseeing 
operations in the dink which ran from 
10 am to 3 pm Hundreds of students 
atimded the centre. While the wart 
could have been shorter by going to 
City Hall Square, international Student 
Advisor Enrique Chacon hopes this 
saves as a bit of wake-up call for Service 

“To teU you the truth they would proba¬ 
bly get it taster downtown because there 
are many officers, so they probably 
woukkft have to wait as k>ng£’ Chacon 
said "But they can wait in comfy chairs 
watch TV; and make friends wMe they 
wait 16 important for (he Service Can¬ 
ada office to realize how many interna¬

After David Suzuki came to the Uni* 
versify of Windsor Sept 14 to talk to 
the students about young people voting 
and how they should vote in relations to 
concerns of the environment, his wends 
continue to resonate with students on 
campus * the few who were at file event, 

Hie room* baniy foil, directly reflected 
federal involvement in the 18 to 25 age 
group as only 39 per cent of eligible 
youth voters were involved in the 2011 
federal election. 

University of Windsor Students' Alli¬ 
ance vice president of student advocacy 
Matthew Dunlop said the message he 
came to speak about very good points 
which students should care about in¬ 

volving the health and sustainability of 
Canadds environment 

“We need to be able to have recognition 
that those points are key to u$ surviving 
generations upon generations from now 
instead oflookmg at the short terra' said 
Dunlop. “Whoever is elected in the up¬ 
coming federal election is going to start 
malting polities and they're going to 
start speaking on bAalf of Canada" 

Dunfop said it is importantwe take part 
in wrting so we can have someone we 
agree with making tese potties rather 
than someone we dorit agree with, 

“Wkh one month to vote, the UWSA 
is preparii^ a couple of different cam¬ 
paign strategies*' said Dunlop. 'One of 
them is to have a candidates debate on 
Monday October 8 from 6 pm to 8 

Dunlop said outside efforts have really 
been pushing to get students involved 
and shewing interest in what they have 
to say which he said is definitely goir^ to 
help student turnout 

T think there will be a shift in the minds 
of all students,” said Dunlop, “Tha6 
what we're hoping for, even just an inch, 

Duniop said short term students can gtt 
involved in UEfect, whkh is the UWSA 
campaign for the federal elections and 
long term students can join the UWSA 
advocacy committee which helps run 
and hold emits with different cam¬ 
paigns and make a movement in the 
student body. 

One thiiti year environmental science 
student who attended the assembly, 
Grace Eons, said shes been an envi¬ 

ronmental activist for a while and is 
currently the president of UWindsor 

“Were a student organization on cam¬ 
pus who b focused on makii^ our cam¬ 
pus as well as the whole Windsor com - 
manky more sustainable,” said Enn& 
“We go to grade schools and we teach 
them about fcMng the environment and 
we also do a lot of collections” 

Going along with 5uzuk&, message 
Enos said she is hoping to see more stu¬ 
dents go out and vote and be interested 
in their country and environmenL 

“Vtere given the awesome opportuni¬ 
ty on October 19 to change things and 
help Canada out and make our future 
better” sakl Enn& 1 would just encour¬ 
age everybody to go out put a vote in 
and make an educated detiaonT 

She said the group is working to a lot of 
conimunify park and shordine dean* 
ups and encourages everyone to get in¬

"I think & great were promoting the

ident Jaydee larpeh. “Wfe had a few 
students come out, not as much as we 
wouldhave liked, but the quality of con¬

In lieu of Phog Lounge receiving acco¬ 
lades from the likes of GBC for being 
an exceptional venue for live mime, one 
could say there was an indined interest 
towards the seventh annual Phog PhesL 
Yet the event was actually dose id not 
even happening this year 

"The deadline baskaBy came up way 
quieter than antidpMed Its just been 
administrative difficult to achieve," 
said organizer and Phog Lounge owner 
Tom Luder. 

Between the numerous shows taper 
sets up in and out of his establishment, 
his time to organize Phog Phest was 
dwindling. Essentially he credits Ste¬ 
phen Hargreaves for making this yean 
festival a reality when he came on board 
as a oo-oiganizer As music festivab of 
this size usually consist of elaborate and 
thorough pbnnir^ the duo had a na¬ 
tive amount oftime to waste in ensuring 
the tents and equipment would be set 
up so the bands they had booked would 
be able to play: 

“Usually when you're hooking an event 
of this size, and you want to get some 
big acts from around the country and 
around America as wdL you start 
bookij^ about six months in advance,” 
Hargreaves said "We started putting 
together the entire thing 30 days be¬ 
fore the festival which is an incredible 
amount ofwork to do” 

Despite tire initial worry, the show did 
go on as Phog Phest 7 was underway 
Sept 19 from eariy afternoon to late 
evening. This year brought the festivities 
back outside, this time with multiple 
food vendors posted up within Phog 

Lourdes parking lot 

There then was of course, the events key 
aspect the music This year placed an 
emphasis on quality over quantity. Last 
years festival sported 40 bands in the 
Capitd Theatre compared to the nine 
who arrived this year. But within those 
nine were prolific touring bands, all of 
whkh were given a gracious amount 
of time to perform thdr sets. Be it Win- 
terskep the Juno Award winning indie 
rockband out in Halifec, or the hip-hop 
artists who form Grand Analog based 
out of Winnipeg, While there was a 
sharp decrease in band numbers, vari¬ 
ety has maintained 

Windsor talent was also represented 
through bands Better Weather and 
Middle Sister, but with RAM Festival 
on the horizon, Luder wanted to focus 
more on outside talent since the up¬ 
coming event will be heavy on local 

'We just saw a redundancy ludersaki 

"Hus iskinda gonna be happening with 

FAM so put the emphasis on strong 
tourir^ bands, because people wanted 
that for a foretime” 

Hundreds upon hundreds attended the 
evert during the set timeframe with 
Wintersleep capping off the night, it 
ended up being cut a couple of hours 
short due to dty curfew; but an alter 
party commenced immediately inside 
Phog Lounge, concluding the festival 
seventh year While nothing is con¬ 
firmed as of this time, theres Me doubt 
in the festival returning for its eighth 
year to further embody the essence of 
the small but potent venue iti basedon. 

"ffs been expected to do it every year, 
and its a break even event for usT Luder 
said ‘We do it because & a celebration 
of what we do all year*’

Over 30 people participated toacharita- 
We cause- one stride at a time -to raise 
awareness on poverty worldwide and in 
our own communities. 

Hie UWindsordub Engineers Without 
Borders raised overSl,OCX)attheir annu¬ 
al Run To End Poverty between Dieppe 
Cardens and the Odette Sculpture Psik 
on Riverside Drive West Sept 19. An 
eight kilometer course was mapped out 
where participants were encouraged 
to bik^ run or walk at their own pace 
with water and rest stops along the way 
and poverty statistics viable to those 
who stored to read them. 

Jennifer Hesser is the coordinator of the 
Run to End Poverty and said she was 
very happy with the turnout, whkh ran 
under a beautiful Saturday afternoon 
sunshine after showers had scattered 
the area earner to the morning. Hesser 
said die funds raised al the event will go 
to EWE'S overseas ventures educating 
African rural communities about sus¬ 

Tm really glad with all of the work we 
have done,” .said Hesser Tfe a bit of a 
commitment to run dght kilometers 
and so Tm really glad everyone came 
out today They did their best and ev¬ 
eryone did a great Job fundraising. We 
out from all over the city of Windsor so 
we’re Just happy to get the word out We 
had an tofonnatjon booth at Devon- 
shire Mall which he^ed us get over 30 
people sign up this year so hopefully 

nest year we can get more runners too? 

Hesser, 22, is currently puraiii^ her 
Masters Degree to Social Work at 
UWiodsor and said she regrets not 
being involved with the group earikr 
during her education as EWR helps lo¬ 
cal students get entrenched in the local 

"1 think itfc really important for univer¬ 
sity-aged people to understand, even 
if they are not from Windsor, that the 
local community needs to pull together 
on issues such as poverty said Hess¬ 
er “Poverty is something that can af¬ 
fect anybody at anytime of their life, it 
doesn’t discriminated' 

The unfortunate reality is that the aver¬ 
age family in Windsor-Essex might be 
a Job loss, wage decrease or illness away 
from living in poverty Over 91,000 
Windsor residents make less than 
$20,000 a year and ^profflmatdy 48 
million people to Canada are currerdy 
living in poverty 

Hesser said the event was a unique way 
to promote a cold hard feet which too 

manyof thosewho live amongrt us have 

pfe aware that tt is an issue and ft is defi¬ 
nitely an issue with the high unemptoy- 
ment rate and even Just talking about it 
is something you can da” said Hessen 
"feu don't have to donate your money

somethtog everyone can do”

“Feed Your Body and Mind” Provides

Students of all walks of life were wel¬ 
comed with open arms in the Ambas¬

al wellness and how to manage success 
in university 

The mentorship program Connecting-

about the transition from high school to

off a yoga dass was given after the pre¬

cess pairs first generation students with 
a mentor to their program as a guide to 
answer questions or hefp them to any 
way to transition to university Sydney 
Murray is the program coordinator of 
Connecttog4Success and said personal 
wellness is often one of the biggest pri¬ 
orities first generation students forget 
about when entering university 

"They think its all about academics and 
doir^ wdl but personal wellness is just 
as important as academic wefinessT said 
Murray “So were trying to combine the 
two so that students know ifc okay to 
take some time atone for some yoga or 
some healthy eating because that is just 
as toiportantfoan getting thatA-phis on

Usa Boyer is a program mentor to the 
program which means she has two stu¬

believes it is good far first-year students 
to general to have foe opportunity to 
meet one another and share thdr sim¬ 
ilarities at an event such as “Reed Your

"[This isj an opportunity to meet each 
other, perhaps find someone in the

when I came here and I didntknow that

somebody there to tdf you what not to

Fast Food Delivered Faster

Those whove been a indent long

there being a thin variety as to what

For the past two months, OmniNoms 
has been trying to establish itself as a 
true third-part delivery service. Where 
last food restaurants such as McDon¬

their own, OmniNoms aims to pkk 
up the slack by delivering those meals 
straight to your home.

No partnoship is required between die

may retrieve the food from. By making 
an order on the OmniNoms website, 
a delivery driver will pick the food up 
hum the restaurant, bring it to the cus¬ 
tomer and charge them the regular price

curred on both days. While it was a way 
for some couples to do the bulk of their 
shopping, other couples were there for 
merely a few extras. Couples like Jordan 
Charfebois and HoBy Ferguson for ex¬ 
ample, have been engaged since Christ¬ 
mas of last year and have been forming 
their plans ever since. Having already 
gotten the tag aspects out of the way like 
choosing a venue and a DJ. they found 
the event experience to be impersonal 
to a degree, but aifoyed the aesthetics it 
had to offer. 

“You can go from booth to booth and 
plan your entire wedding here,” said co¬ 
ordinator Nancy Oampana, “A wedding 
show brings the businesses within a cer¬ 
tain region all together under one roof 
to make it convenient for the shopper” 

Some of the services included vkfeog- 

raphy honeymoon planning, music a l 
talent, lighting coordination and dress 
alteration companies such as Maria 
Ernestos, Owner of the boutique Here 
Comes the Bride in Leamington, Ernes¬ 
to orders her dresses and performs her 
alterations free of charge, which can be 
fooked at as a business advantage, 

“My boutique is special because fm one 

'Theres an dement thats off-putting, 
with everybody competing against one 
another for your attention; 1 Charfebois 

T really like looking at the deoor that 
they had set up” Ferguson said "The lit- 
tle station, sedng bow they bid out their 

tables and all the good stuff and flipping 

through bodes and seeing different 
designers. I really liked that aspect of it” 

The MI event was one plentiful in op¬ 
tions, However the main event is just a 
few months away with Wedding Ex¬ 
travaganza 2016. It will cover two floors 
of the Caboto Club on top of being a 
weekend event and will begin Jan. 16,

With East-West Invitational 


Sports Editor 

Wfomeris hockey flit the ice at South 
Windsor Arena for a pair of batiks 
against Canadian university omipeti- 
tion to begin die 2015 season 

Head coach Jim Hunter and the Wind¬ 
sor Lancets womens hockey team 
played host to the Ottawa Gee-Gees 
and Manitoba Bison over the weekend 
in the East-West Invitational tourna¬ 
ment Over the course of two games* 
Windsor went 1-1 with a 4-2 win over 
the Gee-Gees and suffered a 5*2 loss to 
the Bbons Sept 19. 

'The Gee-Gees defeated the Bisons 4- 2 
to kick offthe tournament Friday night 
at South Windsor in abatifeofmter-pro- 
vindal fcesu Windsor took a 4-2 victory 
over Ottawa die nod afternoon but had 
a short turnaround betwam contests as 
they hosted the Bisons at 1030 Sunday 
morning, Windsor started off where 
they left off from the day before and 
took a2-G lead earfy in ftie contest but 
would surrender five unanswered goals 
in a 5-2 defeat. 

Hunter said he was happy with the 
execution of Windsors offensive and 
defensive systems in the first portion of 

‘1 thought against Ottawa we played 

a real stior^; garnet said Hunter *%Ve 

knew we were going to be tired coming 
back and playing al 1030 am and fm 
sure Manitoba was too but we battled 
hard for three periods. We found the 
answers we were looking ibr out of these 
exhibition games and thats what we try 
to do in these games," 

With a roster turnover of seven new 
players in the Lancers lineup, Hunter 

said his new players simply cannot play 
like rookies, 

*Tf they re going to come in and play ev¬ 
eryday, they have to play like a veteran? 
said Hunter. "But we have rookies who 
are doing that and that is tough to da 
You have girh coming in at 17 years old 
and they are playing against 22 and 23 
year-old women. For them to step in 
and play like veterans is a big thing and 
thatsa bright spot for us," 

fillian Rops and Erinn Noseworthy will 
take over the leadership role after the 
graduation of six seniors from Wind¬ 
sors 2014-15 rostei; a group whose 
experience hdped the Lancets to a iifth- 
place finish in the competitive OUA 
with a 14-64 record in regular season 


Lancers axajrtain Hops said the East- 
West Invitational was a good start to the 
season but the team knows where they 
need to improve. 

"Were still learning our systems but 
where we are at right now is a good 
start? said Hops. "We all battled togeth¬ 
er and tfiafs what it takes to win in this 
league, Manitoba was a big tom but we 
stuck with it" 

Hops said the beginning of the year is 
tough because so many players have 
come from different systems but can al¬ 
ready sec progression among the teams 


tt Tbey are coming along great, corning 
here they are loaded with different sys¬ 
tems but it takes time," said Bops, "We

Movie Review: Fantastic Four 

A remake made thinking, Well, we can always do another remake . > 


News Editor 

The director of alternative style films 
such as ‘Chronicle’ has pul out the big¬ 
gest superhero flop ever this summer 

Director Josh Trank released 'Fantastic 
Four' to theatres Aug, 7 and fm very 
glad I did not pay to go to theatres to 
watch what HI call the worst superhero 
movie ever 

With no distinct action scenes, no char¬ 
acter development and file kitdiering 
of the greatest Marvel villain, the movie 
had me wanting out of my own house 
to get away from it 

Tfiis was the first movie ever in which, 
fiiroughout the whole movie, I had no 
care for what was happening next even 
as a major Marvel fen* 

The movie starts off with a very long 
intro about two kids, Reed Richaiw 
(Miles Teller) and Ben Grimm {Jamte 
Bdl), beoomiiig best friends making a 
device to transport items somewhere 
- they durit know ^actiy where - and 
be able to bring it back. With this comes 

my first complaint of the movie - If 
you’re going to make a crowd buy into 
lake science, at least sell it with fake sci¬ 

A! no point did the mtwk even attempt 
to explain why or how this was dona 
It showed a lot of formulas and com¬ 
puters, but the tack of information, not 
to add die actors didn't even appear to 
be any bit intelligent in character, was 
a complete turnoff to make me care or 
show interest 

It then goes seven years into the fofcure 
where Reed goes off to recreate his de¬ 
vice with a random group of young sci¬ 
entists. He meets up with Johnny Storm 
(Mkhad R, Jordan), Susan Storm (Kate 
Mam) and Victor Von Doom (Toby 
KebbeilV They instantly all become 
friends with no development of why 
they should care about one another, 
they all just magkaBy get afong. 

They finally create the teleportation 
device, which, oh, by the way, doesn’t 
teleport you somewhere on the world 
it teleports you to an alternate universe* 
and Von Doom gets duck there Every¬ 

one else, on the other hand, gels tele¬ 
ported back with powers and the ship 
blows up. 

Reed got stretchy for no apparent rea¬ 
son, Sue becomes invisible because, 
even though she didrit go die was in 
the lab when they returned and was 
hit by some power surge* Johnny was 
on fire when returning and now he 
controls it and Ben got hit with a Sot of 
rocks, sou . now hefe a rock peraxi- 

Immedktdy as they are retuned and 
held in study' labs, the movie fast for¬ 
wards to a point where they know how 
to control their powers now* save Reed 
who escaped and ran away 

Everyone becomes upset with Reed 
and the American national defens¬ 
es b^jn using Ben* Johnny and Sue for 
worldwide strategic missions. 

Sue, a master of patterns - quite the title 
- finds Reed and they bring him bade to 
create a new machine to find resourc¬ 
es from this akernative planet in order 
to fijd the new one, because it worked 
so well the first tune 

When a group, not including our he- 
roes; goes back* Von Doom is still alive 
and is taken back to the real world after 
they completely abort the mission to 
find new energy there as of now 

Victor Von Doom, or Dr. Doom, is 
supposed to be the most dangerous, 
smart and lethal force in the Marvd 
Universe, but somewhere along the 
line in filming* the costume and make¬ 
up design decided it was a good idea 
to make him look like an awful 1980s 
horror film monster and go with it To 
add to it* Trank thought it was good to 
have him walk around in a darkened 
kb adding to the awful 80s theme 

Von Doom kills a bunch of people, he 
returns to the alternate universe once 
more and the four chase after him 

In the first 'action scene of the movie, 
not much action haoDens. Von Doomis 

trying to pull cars and trees - there may 
have been more but tiiat is what was 
filmed - into the alternate universe for 
no explained reason throi^h a magical 
portal he can make which is also unex- 

The fighting was a sad excuse* the vi¬ 
suals where comparable to the original 
Star Wars Sims and i really didn't care 
if tiie movie would have killed everyone 
off because I had no attachment what¬ 

Fantastic Four proved to be a movie 
for no one There was no concefrt, sto¬ 
ry-telling or interesting characters in it 
I didn't Laugh* I didrit say coot to any 
parts and I did not want to finish the 
movie after being only three minutes in. 

HI giw the movie aone out of five for at 

least Irvine to make a movie 


Power lifting For A Powerful Cause

ally give back to the community in toe 
unique way fitness cm 

hopefully these competitions give 
ine an opportunity to participate in

Earlier in the year, Empire Musde host¬ 
ed the Bill Maden Memorial Bench 
Press Contest for ALS and Hedges is 

h i ppin g the deail lift compe¬ 

tition can have an even bigger turnout 

"The reception for the bench press 
contest was really strong* said Hedges, 
"The man who it was named after was 
a local guy who was an ALS-suferer 

who passed away unfortunately a few 
months ago but itk great to have some¬ 
thing like that in his memory, Fm ex - 
pectii^ to have an even better turnout 
this time for the dead M contest

ed at 925 Crswfofd Ave in February 
of 2015 and is expecting the same core 
group of individuals from previous con¬

naotion the numbo - of participants and 
toe funds raised will increase, A S25 rec¬ 
ommended donation is the only' entry 1

The competition is open to anyone 
who is interested to partake and has 
a judged system based on the weight 
lilted relative to the participants 1 body 
weight- That way, someone who is new 
to toe sport or who onlyweighs a certain 
amount can come and be able to com¬ 
pete against someone who might wdgh 
much more and be a lot stronger, 

'^specially because it is a diarity event, 
we wanted to keep it very open,* said 
Hedges. T wanted k to be accessible for 

people who are new to toe sport of pow¬ 
er lifting or even just interested to be able 
to come out, fed competitive and not

As weight training or resistance train¬

things I can do for my community. The

Video Game Review: Conker’s Bad Fur Day 

Still Cute, Cuddly and Filthy as Ever— 14 Years Eater 


Arts Editor 







N64. XBOX 360 

Upon making its debut on the N64, 
‘Conkers Bad Fur Day 1 was initially set 
tube a light and cutesy aflkir. Conker the 
Squirrel who first appeared as a playable 
character in Dsddy Kong Raring was 
supposed to be a figure mainly direct¬ 
ed towards children in the same vein 
as 'Banjo-Kazooie It easily could have 
been another one of those platformers 
where you wandered around a vibrant 
world, grabbing oodles of collectables 
and performing a series of heroic ac- 
tions as you head towards the finish line. 

Bad Fur Day keeps the world, but only 
as a form of deception. For this is a story 
about a squirrel who starts iris day with 
an intense hangover foitowing a night at 
a pub and ends toe day as the king of file 

Almost 1 5 years after its release, Bad Fur 
Day remains one ofa kind 

The game moves at a pretty straightfor¬ 
ward pace since ifis essentially a story 
driven experience But the narrative 
leads to pretty seating and hilarious 
moments as itfc successfullyweavedwith 
challenging platforming and action se¬ 
quences, What really makes the game 
work is the ingenuity of the context-sen¬ 
sitive mechanic By simply pressing one 
button it allows Conker to put away his 
default weapon* being a pan, so 
be can successfully tackle a situation un¬ 
der his present diaimstances. It could 
be using a slingshot to take down a few 
bugs or turning into an anvil to make a 
heavy drop towards a new location. Its 
an atypical mechanic as toe adventure 
you mbark on is hardly typical itsdf 

Theres no princess to save, no great evil 
to stop. Is really just Conker tryingtoget 
home and encountering a variety of ex¬ 
periences along the way. From the sec¬ 
ond you move Conker and have to deal 
with sluggish control due to how hang¬ 
over lie ts, you get five sense its charming 
art design and family-friendly music is 
nothing more than a dirty trick This is 
a game where some of toe acts include 
guiding bees to a big-breasted sunflow¬ 
er* fighting against an opera-singing poo 
monster by throwing toilet paper in ifs 
mouth, and embarking in a war against 
an army of evil teddy bears, Your only 
two collectables in the game are choco¬ 
late for your healto and odd hard cadii as 
the sde form of progresskm Ym could 
certainly aigue by taking this direction, 
the content in the game is feiriy thin. 
The game after all can be docked any¬ 
where between eight and 12 hours. But 
the quality of each chapter makes this a 
very fulfilling adventure. 

The humour in the game could be 
considered juvmile. The characters are 
shamelessly potty-mouthed and the 

game certainly isn’t below a fort joke 
here and a difly one there. But its also 
deverfv filled with multiple movie ref¬ 
erences from something as on the nose 
as recreating scenes from "Savftig Private 
Ryan or The Matrix^ to subtle allusions 
towards "Blue Velvet The opening of 
the game itself is a dear homage to A 
Clockwork Orange and throughout it 
takes several cues from a variety of clas¬ 
sic films winch help enrich the story and 
its universe. It also manages to play on 
tropes of its own medium by sometimes 
malting Conker become self-aware of 
toe fact he; the lead character in a video 

Then therek Conker himself While 
he may be portrayed as a womanizing 
drunkard of a squard the character 

Tlieres also a happy-goTucky ted you 
get from the character regirdless of the 
situation, which makes plying as him 
truly delightful Perhaps even to the 
point where you wish had have made 
more video game appearances. 

The game was to have a sequel whkh 
unfortunately became cancelled during 
devekpmenL Conker is a character de- 
serving of another chapter as his legacy 
is almost entirely within Bad Fur Day 
But perhaps there have been worse fetes, 
as the game stiU manages to be a very re- 
freshing experience despite te age. Now¬ 
adays, developers would think twice in 
making a game and stuffing with such 
erode content But Bad Ftir Day does it 
without shame and in spades While age 
has caughtup to it in obvious fidds suda 

design and voice work helps him be- as graphics, sound and control it re- 
come a lovable adorable looking drunk, maimanadvenfeirew^ vrorthhavinc.

Three days later the Lancers will host the

rematch ofa 2-2 draw between the duhs 
in a hot showdown three weeks prior in 

"Six points is what we needed headed 
into a big week against Western and 
York" said Vizirakis "This week we 
worked on a lot of set pieces as wei as 
attacking and defending the ball in set 
pieces and it worked out wdL We took 
our chances and were structured realty 

On Saturday Noah Pio gave the Lancers 
a quick 2-0 lead less than five minutes 
into the game, scoring both goals just 
G37 seconds apart 

A^oma hdd die Lancets off the board

Windsor would go on a four-goal burst 
to earn the dedstwe win. Jamar Redhead 
scored Windsor^ third goal in the 54th 
minute whik Stefan Grigorakis, Lyuwu- 
na Jumbo and Damon Johnson would 
each score agod in the final 20 minutes 
to make it a 6-0 derision 

The Lancers would be no kinder to 
their guests the next afternoon as they 
used a balance attack, scoring four goals 
in each halfto sweep the weekend series 
in a resounding 8-0 victory. Windsor 
put 24 shots toward Algomas goal and 
moved the ball at will

ed wdl on the weekend with 14 goals as 


"Going forward we have a lot of oonfi- 
dence in our strikers and our forwards 
so hopefully they can bring that against 
Western*" said Vcarakis. "We need to 
take care of our bodies and go into our 
walkthrough Tuesday and see what 
changes we need to make Wednesday 
we need to go on the road and get three 

The Lancer womens soccer team also 
swept the visitors from Algoma in tfadr 
weekend set by defeating the Thun¬ 
derbirds 1(M) on Saturday afternoon 
followed by a 7-0 wm Sunday. With the 
victories the Lancers are now 4-4 on 
the season and are tied for fourth place 
overall in the OUA West division 

A strong second half Saturday led to the 
Lancers lopsided wire Windsor led 3-0 
at halftime before knocking in seven 

goals in the final 45 minutes to take the 
three goals in a 12 minute time span 
while Baxa Feurth and rookie Jenysis 
Gordon each scored two. Lone Lancer 
tallies came from Uteey Marooux* Am¬ 
ber Hoskins, ainlkcmimMartia 

Marcoux said it was good to be able 
to utilize aB of Windsors lineup and 
change the dynamic to see how every¬ 
one works together 

"Gur main goal was to try and disperse 
the ball and I think we did a really good 
job of that” said Marooux. “ft was an 
overall good weekend for u& We need¬ 
ed these two wins to bump us up in toe 
standings, ft's cruda! because we tooka 
couple of losses early in the season and 
we needed to move on and go forward 
each week." 

In game two of the weekend double- 
header Chretien once again found the 
bade of the net on multiple occasions. 
The second year forward seemed another 
two gpals to bring her weekend total to 
five, while Cara Grovski also knocked 
in two Singles came from Gordon, 
Marlin & Paiten vStephens, Second year 
goaftender Krystin Lawrence earned 
file shutout in net for both games. 

Solidified as the Lancers starting goal¬ 
keeper, Lawrence said she wanted to use 
the weekend to improve on her outlet 
passes to defenders and midfielders in 
an attempt to improve Windsors tran¬ 
sition play far when they face more stiff 
competition later in the season 

"I didht get many shots but I just had 
to stay patient and be their for support 
and moving the ball up to the defence," 

said Lawrence T embrace that role and 
I need to work on it so hopefully I can 
progress each game As a unit we have 
some work to do stiD but once we get to 
that point we know we can play at were 
going to be unstoppable We just need 
to rest and be prepared for eadi match

manager '"Unfortunately sometimes 
books are replaced by newer editions 
butwewill let you know if that comes up 
as soon as possible. Otherwise students

who draft an alternative way to return 
books get some money bade 

'VVeve bought bade one and a halftimes 

more books back this year than the last 
and students are getting better prices 
now; 1 said Deck "We’re obviously filling 
the need for people to get the best prices 
bade for their books.” 

Deck said the most theyH ever pay for 
a sellback b 50 per cent of the original 
lining price, but It depends on the bode 

He said they are in partnership with two

The books that offer this mu£ be re¬

tain its status as die nations automotive 
capital theres a more creative focus at¬ 
tempting to be cultivated. Be it throi^h 
musk, visual arts and perhaps as of re¬ 
cent poetry 

Now, there has always been a poetry 
scene in Windsor, If you attended Phog 
Lounge anytime within the past few 
years, you may have experienced or at 
least heard of TOAST Open Mic Poet¬ 
ry an event continually anti passionate¬ 
ly hosted by poet Benny Alexander. In 
living others a platform where they can 
truly express without prejudice, it played 
a big part in forming a poetry scene in 
the dty but it was one still scattered and 

So what better way to give some focus 
and voice than with a little contest? 

Over die past few months, Phog Louise 
has been host to another poetry event 
the Windsor Poetry Slam Started by 
Marc Smith in 1984 Chicago, slam po¬ 
etry is competitive poetry fts one based 
on a numbered scale and one where the 
performance can matter just as much, 
if not more th an the w ords being per¬ 
formed. Organized by Matt Loeb, the 
objective was simple bu3d a team and 
give Windsor its own platform. 

“I want to be able to bring Windsor into 
a national dialogue fea& happening,” 

The rules were simple: pods were to 
present original work with no props 
or costumes. The presentation would 
be scored by three judges and over the 
course of a couple of rounds, the scores 
would be averaged in order to deter¬ 
mine a victor. The first round erf com¬ 
petitions occurred June 24 where poets 
competed for humble cash prizes, but 
more importantly a spot in the finals, 

which occurred Sept 20. 

Attendees were also usually treated to a 
featured poet, one of which being An¬ 
dre Prefonlaine who is currently based 
in Toronto With numerous accolades 
under his bdl, including being a two- 
time Underground Slam Champion 
of Canada, he admires the competitive 
spirit behind the artistry, but also em¬ 
phasizing it goes beyond 

‘Its exciting, theres a sense of vibrancy 
to it Theres no expectation that you sit 
down and stay quid. You rabble rouse; 
you try to sway the judges and believing 
that what you sawwas the best thing on 
EarthT Prefontaine said ‘The poetry is 
the point, not the points. Were here to 
shareour stray as a cofieetjve, aaimmu- 

Bods like Jason Ross, who ended up 
being one of five pods representing the 
Windsor Poetry Slam, weren't appealed 
to the competition and more so looked 
at it as a way to share. He said anytime 
he performs he portrays a font man 
persona, and while competition doesn't 
drive him, he still goes on stage entirely 
out of want

but I realized if I want to participate, 1 
have toT Ross said “At an early age I got 
into punk rode and thrash metal and as 
a teenager ihe only thing I coul d relate to 
or haw an interest in were lyrics. 

Naturally a debate would be indined to¬ 
wards whether or not art is something, 
whkh should be judged by a supposed¬ 
ly arbitrary number. But some kick at 
it as a form of motivation to pump out 
stronger, fresher work. 

“Even though we talk about how arbi¬ 
trary it is giving points for art, leaving 
a form in which you can congratulate 
or give people accolades for their art

Gee-Gees Keep Lancers Waiting 
For First Gridiron Victory 


Sports Editor 

The Windsor Lancets football team is 
still looking for their first win of the reg¬

The Lancets dropped a 52-24 decision 
to the Ottawa Gee-Gees Sept 19 in 
Ottawa and with the toss the lancers 
will took to defeat the Tanner tiolden 
Hawks during their home-coming for 
their first taste of victory in 2015. 

“We knew going in we were going to 
have to score some points in order to 
compete,” said DAmore “They have 
a pretty’ high-octane offense but we 
thought we did some good things mov¬ 
ing the fbotbalL Early on in the game 
we had some opportunities to get some 
points on the board and get some con¬ 
fidence but for whatever reason we just 
stalled on some drives.”

Hugh Paulin but the second quarter 
would yidd no points for Windsor

Movie Review: Black Mass 


The Lance Contributor 

Crime dramas are one of my favour¬ 
ite genres in dnema. There is a certain 
track record of excellence expected 
to come associated with these types 
of movies. Horn The Godfather to 
Goodfellas! fiom "Beat * 1 to The Depart¬ 
ed! almost every decade has a definitive 
crime film. With Scott Cooper's new 
film ’Blade Mass! we might have found 
the one for this decade. 

Sporting excellent performances from 
almost evi^y big name on screen, 'Black 
Mass' is a finely layered bfopc which rips 
at your collar for attention and doesn't let 
go until die credits roH 

Eariybuzzoutofthe filmslimited release 
liad critics calling this a rebirth for folui- 

ny Deppfe eareenWhile I would argue 
his career didn't entirely need one, the 
statement could not be truer, Depp has 
always gone for the more out of the ordi¬ 
nary character* one which requires him 
to go over the top in die role without ac¬ 
tually overacting. Here we see him dig 
in and disappear behind the character as 
usual, tadding the refe in a modi mote 
natur al and organic fashion. 

Depp plays notorious Boston criminal 
kingpin James White/ Bulger, a man 
who up until his arrest m 2011, was #2 
on the FBFs Ten Most Wanted Crimi¬ 
nals list *Black Mass' demonstrates how 
an alliance wfth the FBI allowed Bulger 
to become one of the most notorious 
criminals in the US* 

This alliance was initiated by newly 
appointed FBI Agent John Connolly, 

played by Jod Edgarton, who grew if? in 

South Beaton with the Bulger brothers; 


James and Senator Billy Bulger* played 
by Benedict Cumberbtfdt Connollys 
intention was to use James as a pro¬ 
tected informant to provide the FBI 
information regarding foe wliereabouts 
and activities of the Patriarca organized 
crime family based out of Bostons north 
end This information sharing between 
foe two parte allowed for Bulger's as¬ 
sent to power. 

Depp has not been this phenomenal in 
alongwhik. Equal parts chilling, creepy 
and utterly engrossing, Depp has quick¬ 
ly become a frontrunner for this years 
Best Actor Oscar award The makeup 
work certainly contributes to this* but he 
is unrecognizable in this role. Mesmer¬ 
izing is a word audiences will be floating 
around for the weeks to come. 

Edgarton equally does a great Job as 
John Connolly. Perhaps possessing the 
greatest Boston accent of this cast, Ed- 
garton balances the weight of a man 
who believes he is to become a home¬ 
town hero. All while expressing the 
subtle doubts, which creep in as the 
successful results begin to dwindle and 
those around him see the deception hes 
been wheeling in the name of justice 

The true faults of the film lie with its 
traditional af^roadi to dnematogr^hy 
and the lade of opportunity ter the fihrfc 
female performers. Dakota Johnson, 
Juno Temple and Marine Nkholson 

respectively all get their opportunity to 
shine in their roles and they aD rise to the 
occasion* Unfcrtunatdy their scenes are 
never more than 5 minutes tong and we 
are left lipping for more of an adubitiorc 
!n terms of shot presentation* its just not 
anything special yet foe performances 
more than make up for this slight failure, 

'Black Mass' is an excellent example of 
how to successfully make both a crime 
drama and biopie 1 provides Johnny 
Deppwith arofebecanmorethan make 
his own* and makes it look easy Keep mi 
eye out for this film come Oscar season, 
as it’s sure to make some noise

The UWSA Board has suggested resig¬

The decision was made to suggest re¬

the last UWSA board meeting OcL L 
Thiswas due to the breaching ofUWSA 
bylaw 105.03 (d) which states ‘The of¬

vacated immediate If a Director or 
Executive is absent fioni three (3) con¬

deemed to constitute that Director or

a national conference in Edmonton, Al¬

**Wh& had happened for the third

told him I wasn’t because my phone

home, charged my phone and mes¬ 
saged him back and asked if I could 
join the meeting to which he replied ‘ we 
can't do anything novtf even though the 
meeting was still in session.”

Lance Contributor 

A custom-built truck traveling around

campus this past weekend to showcase 
a number of art pieces, activities, world 
maps and quizzes with the purpose 
being to teach students and the public 
about global issues, 

“Together: an exhibition on global de¬ 
velopment? 1 opened its doors for the 
students at the University Gel 2 and 3. 
Housed in a custom- built truck, the ex¬ 
hibition has been traveling across Cana¬

like the University of Toronto. Universi¬

of Windsor for the Alumni Weekend 

‘The goal of the exhibition is to cele¬

people as possible to spread awareness,” 
said Stephanie Larocque, the Tour 
Manager for the mobile exhibitioa “We 
target elementary schools, high schools 
and universities so that students can vol¬ 
unteer for projects around the world” 

Funded by the Canadian Government, 
Department of Foreign Affairs and 
Trade and Development Canada, the 
portable exhibition was an idea origi¬ 

nated by the Aga Khan foundation, a 
private non-profit international agency 
which deals with issues like poverty, il¬ 
literacy and health concerns in Africa, 
Middle East and South and Central 

The truck was filled with various activi¬ 
ties such as interactive worid maps and 
quizzes to test general knowledge. All of 
these elements added to die ambience 

of the unique design of the exhibit Var¬ 
ious photographs, screens and cultural 
artifacts were also showcased for the 
visitors to see 

“The design for the exhibit took dght 
months which involved illustrations, 
concept art, fabrications said Tbtiy 
Amato, the president of MRA, experi¬ 
ential toms and equipment, who collab¬ 
orated with the Aga Khan Foundation 

to realize this exhihitioa “Our key is to 
make everything mobile, so that every¬ 
thing we build travels. We want filings 
to be interactive so that people can re¬ 
member it and adding a lot of visuals 
and textures matters” 

Amato said with technology so vibrant 
and sound in this age* we are exposed to 
the internet and other forms of media 
to get information* Ihe challenge arises 

when we are confused in following one 
valid source; Exhibits like 'Together” aid 
people in taking up active roles to make 
huge differences for the world and com¬ 
bat social issues and make the world de¬ 
void of suffering.

Open House Bids Farewell 
to Dean of Science 


Arts Editor 

University staff and fomlty members 
found themselves under one roof to 
wish one <rftheirc^goodfodconher 
future endeavors. 

Effective at the end of September, Dr 
Marfys Koschinsky stepped down as the 
Dean of Science as her second and final 
term came to its conclusion at the Uni¬ 
versity of Windsor As a result, an open 
house was held at Kaizman Lounge 
Sept 29 where colleagues bid her safe 
journey towards her new position as a 
scientific and executive director at the 
Robarts Research Institute located in 

“It just kind of seemed to marry all of 
my passions for administration and also 
for research? Kosdiiraky said 

Koschinsky leaves a legacy of being the 
university's first female dean within the 
Faculty of Science, But she also leaves 
a series of contributions towards the 

t and expansion of various 

programs within the school Having 
never lived in southwestern Ontar¬ 
io prior to Windsor, one of the things 
Koschinsky will come to miss is the 
community and the warm embrace it 
provided her 

"Windsor I think sometimes can be a 
little down on itself, but this is a wonder¬ 
ful oomiminity full of very, very special 
people? Koschinsky said "I became 
modi more embedded in this commu¬ 
nity than 1 had previously in the King¬ 
ton community? 

The open house in Kalzman Lounge 
spanned for two hours. While the rainy 
weather was making for a troublesome 
commune within campus, it didn’t pre¬ 
vent numerous faculty members from 
arriving to gfre her a proper farewell 

“She really supported Its research mis- 
skm and had soane great things in that 
area, but shas also created a sense of 
community in the faculty that goes 
broader than file faculty group you're 
here today? said Vke-Prcrvost

On Sept 30, the newly open Welcome

Internet; its Me, Avery! The b<x>k is a fic¬ 
tion piece written by Jennifer Ammos- 
cato, who works at the university as the 
director of public aflairs and communi¬

series, the story revolves around how a 
woman aims to cope with her personal

resonating internet addiction 

1 think predominately society today 
that rather than going out we just like 
to look at our phones or look on our 
iPad and thats who Avery is? Ammosr 
cato said "The whole point of it is how 
Avery begins to deal with that through 
her own instincts and own experiences, 

and detaches herself from her internet 

With the book, Ammoscato hopes to 
illuminate sodety s current ndiance on 
technology and how people have al¬ 
lowed fftemsdves to be less cautious of 
the information they digest from the in¬ 
ternet The first book took three years to 
write according to Ammoscala While 
she initially had a demographic set to¬ 
wards women who are currently expe¬ 
riencing or have experienced hardships, 
she bdieves the book will strike a chord 
with both men and women, and within 
a variety of age groups, 

"I wanted a book that would resonate 
with anybody wbos been in a really 
difficult situation, particularly women 
whbve gone through rough times like 
divorce? Ammoscato said “I think 
theres some things tliat will resonate on 
a human level that are somewhat not 
really restricted by age. We can have re¬

For local businesses, arguably one of foe 
hugest hurdles they tend to face is the 
ability to secure binding for additional 
resources and finding ways to collabo¬ 
rate with the community at forge. This is 
where an event like Windsor Soup aims 
to make those aspects dick together 

“This gives us a chance to talk together 
said Melissa Miner, program director 
of the Downtown Musk Initiative. Tm 
always looking for ways to odlaborafe 
with community and often it involves 
me going out and finding someone, but 
here were under one big space and hear 
what each other does.” 

Part of the Odette Commerce Society, 
Enactus hdd thdrWindsor Soup event 
atWalkervifie Brewery OctA Being one 
of the six primary projects the group 
hosts within the community rough¬ 
ly 100 people came to mix, mingfe and 
listen to focal entrepreneurs’ pitch why 
they may need and deserve additional 
funding to enhance thdr sa-vkes. 

“A couple businesses that have won in 
the past have been bdping youth, peo¬ 
ple who have been helping mental ill¬ 
ness* a fotofbusinesses who do that and 
need the moneyT said project manager 
Simrato Singh. 

Attendees pay $5 at the door and are 
welcome to have soup as they listen to 
the pitches from various entrepreneurs. 
The magk number of the night was 
four. Four focal businesses were eah 
given four minutes to pitch their pro¬ 
posals, followed by answering four out¬ 
standing questions which came from 
the audience, who also played as voters. 
Tire one with the most votes wins all the 
money made at the door, which is then 
doubled by the P and L Odette Charita¬ 
ble Foundation. Among the businesses 
participating were the Downtown Mu¬ 
sk Initiative and the Windsor Feminist 
Theatre, who aimed to commission a 
play based on missing and murdered 
indigenous women. 

“When you look at U81 aboriginal 
women that are murdered and missirg 
over the course of the past 20 years or sq 
you carit deny that we really need to pay 
attention to this issue nowf said Patri¬

The event is prone to sound response,

Windsor West Candidates Have Open 
Debate for U of W Students 


News Editor 

MP candidates from the Windsor West 
region came to the University of Wind¬ 
sor fer a student 

The Oct 5 debate featured student 
submitted questions and topics written 
before the event, as wdl as some written 
during the event for the second half of 
the debate. The parties represented at 
the debate were the Conservatives with 
Henry Lau, the Liberals with Dave Sun- 
din* foeNDF with Brian Masse and the 
MamsL Leninists with Margaret Villa- 

The first half of the debate had six ques¬ 
tions including issues about healthcare* 
employment and cross-border relations 

but the question with the most student 

response was those of foiition concerns. 

Party candidates from Windsor West came to the University of Windsor for a debate.

The quest™ was what each party 
would do about tuition fees and interest, 
and how they would change it for stu¬ 
dents if elected ire 

First to answer was re-elect candidate 
Masse who said he was proud of the 
work hes done to eliminate the interest 
on student bans. 

"There should not be a single cent of 
interest on student bans,” said Masse: 
"We will move to din unate that because 
it is a in terms of your skill set you 
get out of the university [they are] an in¬ 
vestment into our community and why 
should the banks be making money off 
your back like they made off minewhen 

I paid off my $17*000 which is nothing 
compared to what you have now!’ 

The crowd responded with very ada¬ 
mant dapping and Masse went on to 
say he will work on eliminating ATM 
and credit card fees which he feels area 
scamwhen that money could be used to 
be put bade into our economy 

Next to answer was Villamizer who said 
education from primary to postsecond- 
ary is a right and must be given aconsti¬ 
tutional guarantee 

h cannot be done to make the rich 
richer and the poor poorer as it is done 

todayf said Villamizer* in terms of the 
education system To modernize soci¬ 
ety the aim coeducation must be to give 
rise to the kind of creativity that human 
kind requires." 

Lan answered the question next by 
talking about his three daughters - two 
which are going through school and 
one of them who has graduated 

Lau saH ifhe is elected he wiD be the first 
one to advocate for alfoiriabffity in toe 
post-secondary journey 

He also said the system of education is 
a very good one according to his party 

and not too much interference could be 
bad He said the main concern should 
be creating more jobs in Windsor to 
hdp students pay off their debts. 

Last to have a word was Sundin who 
said the issue was very near to him be¬ 
cause he recently graduated and has a lot 
of debt to pay offhimsdf 

M 16 not toe banks profiting in many 
cases its the Canadian government 
profiting from the backs of Canadian 
students and &a& wrong* said Sundin. 
Tf we're looking at the M potential of 
Canadian society theres a role to play of 

citizens moving forward” 

Sundin said he believes the Liberal gov- 
anment hasa great plan to lower tuition 
costs and to make it easier for middle 
and lower Hass fa milies to send their 
children to university and college. 

He brought up the announcement the 
Liberals had made that day that full time 
students will receive $3,000 in grant 

AH parties answered more questions 
following a break and mingled with the 
students one-on-one. 

Federal elections will be held on Oct 19.

‘The rookies are doing weB but some

we need to work even harder ft is like a 
sliver; we are so dose to beating almost

gish and were unable to produce many

Cristiano DiGiacinto was given a gift 
later in the first when Saginaw’s clearing

Ihe Knights would rally to the tie file

Brown poked die puck past a London 
defender; sped down the ice and beat 
Parsons on the backhand to put the 
game to bed just 17 seconds into the 
extra frame and earn Windsor a 6-5 vic¬

Windsors Dan Beaudoin registered lus

leading up puck drop. 

“Our guys really' ramped it up in our

Videogame Review: Journey

Originally released hack in 2012* “Jour- 
neyf an indie video game, was recently 
launched for the Fkystafion 4, upgrad¬ 
ed with all the bdk and whistles you 
would come to expect foam a next-gen 
remaster During its initial release it won 
all the accolades for its compelling visual 
style and narration and this time around 

it does just that but with sharper visuals 
and upgraded textures, ft is even more 
stunning than before In this age of vid¬ 
eogames where titles like Tall of Duty! “ 
"Destiny” and ‘Grand Theft Auto” 
dominate the market Journey' lias man¬ 
aged to create a niche of its owa ft pro- 
yokes a sense of philosophy of our own 
progression towards our final goaL 

You play as a mysterious robed figure 
stranded in the vast expanses of a des¬ 
ert, with a mountain homing on the 
horizon, whkh is your ultimate desti¬ 
nation. A scarf trails behind you and 
your ability to jump and soar is limited 
by its length. As the game progresses 
your scarf grows and so does your skill 
to glide further You journey through 

snowy mountains engulfed in strong 
winds, deserts that shine like gold 
bathed in the warm rays of die sun and 
dark passageways strewn with rem¬ 
nants of an old dvilizatioa While you 
are progressing through such diverse lo¬ 
cales, you come across things like magi¬ 
cal runes, pieces of doth and flock of rib 
bons that provide energy' to your scarf 
in order to soar. En route to the moun- 
taintop we face monsters guarding the 
ancient edifices and they cm damage 
your scarf if approached, and the harsh 
windy mountain terrain also steals your 
ability to jump. Also as you progress you 
come across another silent robed figure 
like yourself who can either accompany 
you on your travels or do its own thing 

in the world That companion is actual¬ 
ly someone else playing online and can 
join you as structured by the game. All 
these game play dements are cohesively 
constnicted together to give an immer¬ 
sive experience to the player 

Since there is a lack of dialogue and vio¬ 
lence in file game, the subtle orchestral 
score in the background ami file ambi¬ 
ent sounds of the world manages to en¬ 
hance the narrative aspects of the game 
The control scheme does not have a 
steep learning curve and can be gasped 
quickly because of its simplistic nature. 

Ibis mechanical component is quickly 
explained as you start oft 

“Journey” is a story driven experience. 
Words cannot even describe how artis¬ 
tically stimulating it is. Without fire in- 
dusion of violence, it manages to pull all 
the heartstrings and is embedded with 
pliilosopliical connotations as per the 
perceptions of the player, ft is an emo¬ 
tional ride that will be talked about for 
years to come and delving back into ifi>

no surprise for those who experience ft

Local fighter Randi Fields was hoping to

tunity to gain more experience in her 
young career but her opponent would 
unfortunately come into the fight al¬

Fields effort to bulk up in the upcom¬

Instead afa match, trainer Manuel AHa-

Film Review - The Martian 


The Lance Contributor 

When I say director Ridley Scott has 
truly outdone himself with his newest 
film, "The Martian;' I do not say it light¬ 
ly—because he has done truly excellent 
work with this film. 

Based on a novel of the same name by 
Andy War, "The Martian” dhronides 
the over 500-day ordeal of astronaut 
Mark Watney (Malt Damon) after he 

is unexpectedly and brutally stranded 
on Mars when an intense storm brews 
in the planets amiospherc, leaving his 
crew no choke but to abandon him and 
evacuate the plane! immediate With 
no means of communication, Me food, 
and few supplies, the botanist-astronaut 
must figure out a way to last four years 
on a desert planet—the minimum 
amount of time it would take NASA to 
send him a rescue shuttle 

The plot is a roller coaster from start to 
finish, with aperfect amount ofoomedk 
relief an intense moments of suspense 
when everything Wows up in Watneys 
fiice—literally—more than once Al¬ 
though maybe a little bit predictable, 
the plot is no less enjoyable, in my opin- 
toa The writing is fentastiq NASA was 
heavily consulted with during the mov¬ 
ies development to ensure die utmost 
accuracy with the science behind the 

actors’ lines. On top of that, the one- 
matography is just beautilufi the effects 
are perfection, and I daresay I haverit 
heard a soundtrack complementing a 
movie this we! since I saw “Guardians 
of the Galaxy” (Maybe its a space movie 

Oh, and if you can help it try not to took 
up the cast there are about a lialf-doz- 
en actor cameos whkh I found to be a 
pleasant surprise. 

In what I think may just be the perfor¬ 
mance of Matt Damons career, I actual¬ 
ly can’t wait to see this movie again.

,# We locked like a really good football 
team in the third quarter, we made 
some stops,” said DAmore “The prob¬ 
lem is we aren’t capitalizing. We had a 
chance to score in the third but dropped

the ball back but missed the fidd goal 
If we score a touchdown there, we are 
only down 12 and you are kind of in the 
ball game but we didn't score. We hung 
around for a bit and then they scored

Rookie quarterback Liam Putt led the 
Lancers oifense with 165 passing yards* 
one touchdown pass and no intercept 
tkm Putt also finished the game as the 
teams lead rusher with 65 yank Kicker 
Anthony MaJandniccoto finished the 
game with 276 punting yards along with 
a 37 yard fidd goal while David McDuf¬ 
fie totaled 85 punt and kick return yards 
to go along with 69 yards receiving. De¬ 
fensively, Tank Bonas had nine total 
tackles while Matt Gayer finished the 
game with seven 

DAmore said inconsistency happens 
with a young team led by a young quar¬ 
terback like Putt but there are things he 
and the team can be better at and youth 
does not affect them, 

1 jam is getting comfortable and he is 
making a lot of plays with his feetf said 
DAmore “But at the same time I think 
we are not helping him in some of our 
positions that are veteran. Sometimes 
ym need to make some plays for him 
and build his confidence up but when 
he makes four guys miss, whips it down 
the fidd and we don't catch tt, we are not 
hdpir^ him on the offensive skk of the 
ball We are pretty veteran everywhere 
dse except at quarterback and I think 
right now h^ doing a tot and we're not 
bailing him out” 

Windsor got on the board first with 
MalandruoxAds 37-yaid fidd goal, but 
the Lancer-lead did not last lor^ as Mc- 
Masters Wayne Moore found the end 
zone three minutes later on a one-yard 
run to takea 7-3 lead 

Down 28-3 late in the second quarter, 
Tarrence Crawford finished a Lancets 

before the quarter ended to Me a 35-10 
lead heading into halftime 

After McDuffies drop in the end zone 
and Malandruccolds missed 34-yard 
fidd goal attempt early in the third, the 
Lancers spedal teams unit took down 
the McMaster punter at the 21-yard line. 
Nate CfHaltoran caught a 17-yard pass 
from Putt for a Windsor touchdown* 
taking a short pass and faufldosdng a de¬ 
fender who stood between him and the 
end zone Windsors defense forced a 
Marauders conceded safety two posses¬ 
sions later in the third to cut the deficit 
to 16. 

With seven minutes remaining in the 

in hopes of a third-down conversion 
ODntinuing the drive but Putt would 
be sacked back at the 26-yaid on file 
next snap and turnover possession on 
downs. Two plays later, Marauders 
quarterback Asher Hastings completed 
his fourth touchdown pass of the game 
to Max Cameron and put the game out 
of reach. A fumble on Windsors next 
possesion forced a conceded safety to 
round out the games scoring. 

Lancets defensive back Austin Crumb 
admitted some menial lapses on defen¬ 
sive assignments among the secondary 
led to Hastings four touchdowns and 
374 yards passing but said it is not for 

a lack of effort amongst his teammatesL 

' Were trying to do too much, were giv¬ 
ing too much effort, so we just need to 
focus on our jobsT said Crumb 

Windsor will now have a bye and will 
next compete on die road against the 
fifth-ranked Guelph Gryphons at 
Alumni Stadium OcL 17. 

"During die bye week we are going to 
practice as if there is a game [this week] 
and stay focused;' said Crumb “We 
have to come out with fire and try to win

Newly Formed Border Services Group 
Co-Chaired by UWindsor Professor 


Arts Editor 

The Border Issues Working Group, 
just recently formed in September, has 
a UWindsor professor partly helming 
the effort 

Professor Bill Anderson, the director of 
the university's Cross Border Institute is 
also servfog as the co-chair to the Bor¬ 

der Issues Working Group. A coalition 
of the Cross Border Institute, the Coun¬ 
cil of the Great Lakes region and the 
CAN/ AM Border Trade Alliance, the 
Working Group is to serve as a consul¬ 
tant towards the impfrovementofborder 
services at the Ambassador Bridge and

‘¥s just getting started We haven’t even 
had our first meeting yet, but we will be 

essentially pulling the members of this 
regional group to find out what issues 
they would like us to work omT Ander¬ 
son said “My tendency is tokeep trying 
to make a lot oflitfie incremental chang¬ 
es to deal wifii problems at fe 

Andersons duties primarily involve 
acting as a liaison on the Canadian side 
of the border, addressing issues from 
maintenance to legalities. The position 

also involves finding ways to streamline 
the trade processes which occur fre¬ 
quently on the bridge. He will also play 
a part in ensuring trade traffic is evenly 
proportioned once the construction of 
the Gordie Howe International Bridge 
is completed in the coming years. 

As for student invdvement toward bor¬ 
der services goes, Anderson said while 
the opportunity existed in the past, the 

prospects of it happening now are slim 
to none due to the heightened security. 

“Unfortunately because of the feet there* 
more security involved and there* also 
the carrying of firearms by border ser¬ 
vice agents, i& not passible anymore to 
just sort of casually have students on a 
part-time bass,” Anderson said. ’There

be in the past"

Another marquee mem soccer match¬ 
up at Alumni Fidd yielded another 
positive result for the home team as 
the Lancers earned a 2-1 win over the 
McMaster Marauders in OUA regular 
season play this past weekend 

In a rematch of Windsors tone loss of 
the season* a 2-1 setback in eariy Sep¬ 
tember, the Lancers needed to finish the 
final ten minutes of the match with 1.0 
men after Tony Falkestajn received his 
second ydtow card of the matdi and 
was subsequently sent off the pitch. 

With the victory over the sev¬ 
enth-ranked Marauders, the fifth- 
ranked Lancers remain in first place in 
the OUA West division at 9-1-1 for 28 
points while McMaster Ml to 8-3 and 
the idle, third-ranked York lions re¬ 
main 7-1-2 

Lancers director of soccer operations 
Steve Hart said the high-energy match 
was what Windsor expected mming jo 
and now head into an important pair oi 
weekend matches against the Guelph 
Gryphons and Brock Badgers at Alum¬ 
ni Field Oct 9 and 10, 

“McMaster came in off of a good win 
against Western and we hid a day off 
but we practiced hard in the rain af¬

strong individual play fiom Chris AI-

throughout the half allowed them to 
control the game and hold die one-goal 
lead heading into the second halt

Windsor extended their lead just two 
minutes into the second half when 
rookie Noah Pk> pulled three Marauder 
defends and their goalie out of the net 
and squeezed a pass to Speechky-Priee 
who tapped it into the open net lor his 
second of the game and 10th of the sea¬ 

McMaster got on the board 10 minutes 
later when a scramble in front of the 
Lancer net allowed Stefan Shultz to gd 
the ball past Lancer goaJtender Kyle Vi- 
zirakis, ending his shutout streak at six

minutes without surrenderirgagoaL 

The final ten minutes proved to be a 
challenge for both teams as four yeflow 

cards and a red card were handed out 
over the waning minutes of regulation 
and injury time but the Lancers used 
thar experience of playing a man down 
early in the season Id their advantage. 
After EaBtestajn was sent off Windsor

and parked a0 30 defenders in front of

expresses control, but more important- 

- Sicario 

This is where director Etainis Vdle- 


The Lance Contributor 

I find the best films, which set out to 
make a political statement, are theories 
leaving you hangup with a moral di¬ 
lemma on your mind So much so you 
leave the theater in a stale of emotional 
stress, where you need some water and 
a tiny bit of rest because you are so con¬ 
flicted as to what you would do in the 
situations presented on the screen. This 
is the overarching effect, which makes 
“Scano* such a powerful and effective 

The film Mows Kate Mereer (Emily 
Blunt), an FBI agent who is recruited by 
an elected government task force led by 
Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) to assist with 

the war on drug? between the US and 
Mexican border. 

Kate is the filmk moral center and 
through her eyes we see where each 
side of the conflict will go to in older to 
gain some form of edge In one of the 
filn& many highlight sequences, we see 
our task force lead a modem cavalry of 
trucks and SUVs loaded with machine 
gun turrets, as well as soldiers with auto¬ 
matic weapons across the border from 
Texas into Juarez, Mexka The opera¬ 
tion is to extract a high level cartel leader 
back to the US in order to interrogate 
him to uncover the location ofthe high¬ 
er ups, the bosses ofthe bosses as it were 
Along the tour we see the extent of the 
carteTs influence as mutilated bodies 
hang from an overpass; an act which 

ly, fear. Each frame of the sequence is 
suitably tense and where the pulsating 
score rose for each occasion, my heart 
rate followed suit 

Part ofthe beauty of this film is I was 
never abk to guess where we were head¬ 
ed. The adforaofMatlatfo his enforce 
Alejandro (Benkfo Dd Toro) muddled 
the information relayed to Kale; which 
in turn led to my discomfort as to who I 
should place my trust Outside of Kate, 
we never received an answer, whkh is 
simply because there is no txte to rea% 
trust Mattfc god from the start was to 
of the actions necessary to create such. 
It often creates an ethical dilemma for 
Kale and the audience along the way. 

neuve is playing us as the audience 

Kates moral thinking and by-the-book 
approach b often met with no or limited 
success, where Matts achieves bound¬ 
less success, The film is asking one cen¬ 
tral question: what is more desirable? 
Doing whats legal and achieving noth- 
ing or muddling toe ethical lines to gain 
some ground? Even Fm not sure where 
I stand at this point 

There is not one dement of this film, 
whkh lets up to allow for a breather 
Each scene is bound taut with intensity 

and focus. Each action set piece leaves 
the viewer breathless, unsure if some¬ 
thing unexpected is around the comer. 
Each performance is competing to be 
the best, but ni give a slight ed^e to Em¬ 
ily Blunt as our lead In order for this 
film to woric, the moral divide had tobe 
absolutely dear and Bfuni carries the re¬ 
sponsibility with subtlety and brilliance. 

With “Black Mass,”! said we had an ear¬ 
ly contender for Best Actor to Johnny 
Depp. With “SkarioT we have an eariy 
contender for Best Pkttire. 



Spirts Editor 

Two great causes were celebrated during 
an evening of silent auctions, food wine 
tasting and fun - on and offline ice * as 
the Windsor Spitfires played host to the 
annual Hockey and Heels event at the 
WFCU Centre 

Over 130 tidkets had been sold out 
weeks prior to the ladles night out even^ 
which saw aS proceeds going towards 
foeWfrickor Essex County Cancer Care 
Foundation and the Windsor Spitfires 

Event coordinator Jennifer Pomeiieau 
said over $3,800 was raised few the two 
charities and all those who attended had 

T& a Me bit different than your reg¬ 
ular charity event this is all Mi back 

at the hockey game,” said Pomerieau 
"You’re just mingling with your friends 
in the suite, the only difference is to¬ 
night the funds go to charity, ft makes 
it a no-brainer. Just the feet that we sold 
out and we had aft of these people here 
fighting against cancer and rootii^ for 
the Spitfires makes it a successful coHaJ> 

Bomerieau said they wish to continue 
to make Hockey and Hods an annual 
event and ftwas gprattoget both togeth¬ 
er but make sure to look for other up¬ 
coming events put on by both charities 
to support other specific causes such as 
breast or prostate cancer. 

Houkta Kassem, manager and director 
of development at WECCCE has been 
involved with local and regional on-air 
community-focused media far over fif¬ 
teen years. Kassem cunenfry hosts and 

produces TVCogeco Windsors show 
"HoukJa and Friends” and can also 
be found regularfy hosting a variety of 

Kassem said Hockey and Heels has gen¬ 
erated quite a hit of money for the can¬ 
cer centre foundation 

“ftsa wonderful thing to see people col¬ 
laborate like this for a good cause, “said 
Kassem “We sold out and that makes 
me happy Women came together and 
said we are supporting the foundation, 
we are supporting the cancer centre and 
we are supportii^ the Spitfires.” 

Kassem added everts such as this assure 
those involved the funds raised remain 
focal and make sure those living in our 
community with cancer get the help 
they need 

*Wfe take for granted our daily lives 

what we have in front of us. ftk easy to 

point out what we dorit have as op¬ 
posed to what we do have. There are 
people who struggle every single day 
and they walk through that door and 
they make ft work for foemsdvesT said 
Kassem. "WeVe got a bunch of women 
who are excited, hangi n g out with oth¬ 
er girlfriends with some silent auction 
items that are available, great food, great 
friendship, butwe also get to support the 
Windsor Spitfires and attend this game” 

Those who attended saw the hometown 
Spitfires hockey team dominate the vis¬ 
iting Saginaw Spirit on the ice 7-1 and 
enjoyed the hot start foe young QHL 
team is on to begin foe 2015-16 season. 
While foe Spitfires have always been 
competitive on the ice, Kassem said ft is 
their contributions to foe community, 
which makes the dub a winner year in 
and year out, regardless of their results 
on foe scoreboard. 

“The great thing about die Spitfires 
is they are contimiafiy doing thin^ 
for our community so they give back 
just as mudif said Kassem. “Doing an 
event like this, they certainly demit have 
to, they have thdr own foundation, but 
they are continually giving back to their 
community to make a difference.” 

Another part Kassem said is humbling 
about being a part of this type of event is 
seeing money coming in for foe Cancer 
Centre Foundation from multiple local 
donors, no matter how large. 

“ft is important that we get this message 
across,” said Kassem * f We have people 
who are so generous in Windsor Essex 
County who continue to support any¬ 
one in our community living with can¬ 
cer and it means a lot, not only to metwt 
to the staff at foe cancercentre and foe 
staff at foe foundation.”

Arts Council Unveils 
New Volunteer Initiative 


Arts Editor 

The Arts Council Windsor Region is 
aiming to draw in more potential vol¬ 
unteers with the help of a new training 

It was on Oct 14 when the smART 
Card Volunteer Session kicked things 
off at the Artspeak Gallery* where the 
ACWR offices are held Those inter¬ 
ested in the Arts Council or others just 
looking to give back to die community 
attended an orientation which con¬ 
sisted of teaming about the ACWKs 
background objective and positions 
available for volunteers. Some of the 
positions range from gallery assistant to 
strategic planning through the coundfs 
board of directors. 

"1 think I want to give back to due com¬ 
munity, and Fm interested and involved 
in the arts, so this seemed like a good 
opportunity to see what they're aboutT

ed the volunteer session. 

through community outreach* on top of 
supporting focal artists by giving them 
a canvas to display their work via the 
Attspeak Gallery. They also aid in grant 
consultation* host a series o f workshops 
and offer a comprehensive calendar, 
which showcases numerous art events 

within the community. 

With it being a non-profit organization, 
volunteers are integral to the ACWR 
So by havii^ this orientation session, 
people will have a near complete idea as 
to what the organization expects from 

them* as wefi as how they will eventu* 
ally benefit from getting themselves in¬ 

"'Signing up online a little tat removed 
from the actual volunteer experience 
that they would be having' said ACWR

Videogame Review - Assassin’s 
Creed Chronicles: China 


The Lance Contributor 





itesassiris Creed Chronicles: China is a 
2.5D style game set within the tore of the 
Assassiifc Creed franchise, ft is a spin-off 
and tells the story of a Chinese assassin 
Shan Jun, who had once been trained by 
the series iconic character Ezio Auditore 
Da Firenze, an Italian assassin during 

the Renaissance period The game dis¬ 
tances itself from the main assassin^ 
creed games by presenting a narration 
imbued with a unique watercofor lay¬ 
out, reminiscent of a painting. The levels 
are represented in a side-scroller format 
each Itaving a distinctive visual style of 

It is the 1500s and the Chinese Brother¬ 
hood has been decimated by the Tem¬ 
plars in the East Shao Jun* the protag¬ 
onist of the game has come bade from 
My after bdng trained by Ezto only to 
witness the hold of the brotherhood 
loosening in her homeland She seeks 
vengeance on the Templar order and to 
restore peace once again. Her adventure 

layered with guards and hiding spots to 
deal with on the way. 

As always like ar^ Assassins Creed 
game, the movement of the character is 
fluid and feds right at home Shao Jun 
has an array of weapons to deal with en¬ 
emies and hiding spots are placed strate¬

There are iconic Assassin^ Creed* mo¬ 
ments like hidden blade assassinations, 
bale of hay hiding spots and leaps of 
forth that have been translated wdl into 
the 2D environment Although there 
are multi-background layers to disperse 
the illusion of simple flat 2D environs, 
the game is hampered by many short¬ 
comings, which are quite prominent 
throughout the experience. 

For instance, while in other Assassins 
Creed 5 games players felt overpowered 
in dose combat, here for some reason 
you fed unfairly vulnerable and going 
all guns and blazes is not encouraged 
In order to make stealth more apparent, 
the balance between stealth and combat 
is heking. There are situations where 
you encounter guards, and because of 
the not so polished combat the experi¬ 
ence is unsatisfying. 

The characters are twx>-dimemiond 
and their motives lack the depth that

seems to be out of place and does not

Assassins Creed Chronicles China* is 
a beautiful game to lode at, but visuals 
do not make a videogame great It is 
the culmination of an intriguing story, 
immersive game play and stellar voice

New Health Innovation Initiative 
Looks to Connect Worldwide 


News Editor 

The Wbdd Health Innovation Netwode 
isfookingtoreach out and bring togeth- 
er leaders in health technology to share 
and teach health technologies with one 

WIN, housed in the Odette School of 
Business, has a goal to provide aB Ca¬ 
nadians with a topof-the-line health 
care and economic growth within the 
industry. According to the chair of the 
initiative, the reason they're partnering 
with the US* is because of the strengths 
of our health fields. 

"We both spenda lot of money 1 to deliv¬ 
er a k>l of health care but its not sustain- 
able? said Dr. Anne Snowdon* ‘Were 
not currently achievi ng all of the quality 
outcomes we need to achieve as it stands 
but, with this initiative, were hoping to 
achieve a higher standard! 1 

Canada and the US arrrenffy share a 
work force, primarily in the Windsor 
and Detroit areas, and also take care 
of each others patients, Snowdon said 
both groups have to attain sustainability 
and see how they can evolve health care 

to benefit everyone 

“We both need to get there but the best 
way to get there foster and more effec¬ 
tively is to work together? said Snow¬ 

According to Snowdon, when countries 
work independently it is more likdy they 
will find different ways to do the same 
thing when in reality we could share our 
knowledge and methods and focus our 
forces on news things As Snowdon puts 
ft, l< theres no need to reinvent the wheel! 1 

Snowdon said the network wffl do three 
filing - the first being what they have 
already started by creating new partner- 
shfos with colleagues in the US, She said 
the mix of expertise from both countries 
will hdp the fidd grow to new 7 levels. 

"One thing were currently working 
on is to get medical supplies where 
they need to be as fost as possible? said 
Snowdoa ‘turrentiy there is a lot of 
papa' work and invoicing which takes 
up time and is too long a process. We 
wanttogrt our model equivalent to that 
of Walmarts where with one scan they 
can teH you exadly where a piece ofham 
came from, what it was fed and other 

important details - we need something 
like this in our medical fields? 

Secondly, the network will work to train 
up the next generation ofleaders to take 
over tiffs project in the coming years. 
Snowdon said they don't just teach busi¬ 
ness students the trade and it is open to 
many other groups including, science, 
computer science and nursing students. 

The third thing WIN will work towards 
will be to bring all the infarrnaikHi on a 
global scale of health and to see where ft 
is going in the futum 

“Were focusing on the education, re- 
search and leadership? said Snowdon* 
"The end goal is to have a very high 
performing health system in Canada 
that is able to quickly adopt irew prod¬ 
ucts and tedmbfogies to bring business 
to companies which raises the nations 
GDP whirh in turn fuels the healthcare 

The innovative initiative will be looking 
to expand grow and better healthcare 
around the world all tlirough the Uni¬ 
versity of Windsor*

Online Campus Launched 


News Editor 

The eCampus Ontario portal launched 
just before die University of Windsor's 
reading week and is on the move to 
provide students vrith courses they need 

The Windsor-built, online portal is a 
central hub for Windsor, and other uni- 
vasty and college students, to find and 
access courses they may need or find 
interesting offered at port-secondary 
institutions across Ontario With Uni¬ 
versity of Windsor^ 100 online courses 
offered through the portal and over 
13,000 dasses total, students will be able 
to access what they need and when they 

Nkk Baker, the director of the Office 
of Open Learning, said they have been 
working on the project for a few years 
now and the o riginal goal at mind was 
to allow students to access all toe online 
dasses across Ontario. 

“Before toe portal you have to go to the 
individual school websites and search 
for the dasses you wanted which can 
be very tedious,” said Baker 1 A lot of the 
courses can be hard to find, are unlisted 
and different webstes have dilferent set 
ups which can cause confustonT 

Baker said the government wanted stu¬ 
dents to have more mobility between 
other schools online and to fin d a path - 
way through their degrees as quickly as 

“Lots of students get blocked because 
they get to a point where they realize 
they missed out on a course they should 
have had earlier fchalk not being offered 
again for another year at dieir own cam¬ 
pus,” said Baker. "We wanted a way to 
facilitate for students that may be going 
dirough this - a way for students to be 
able to take courses they have missed 
sooner and get them through school 
fester, or at least on tinteT 

The website, on top of having online 
courses, also provides students with 
tods and guides to hdp them through 
thdr post-secondary endeavors. It also 
provides information on how to apply 
to universities and colleges for students 
looking to get in to post-secondary It is 

completely open to everyone interested 
in furthering their education, from high 
school students to people takingtimeoff 
and also existing students. 

The porta! is aLso working to bring cred¬ 
it transferability information to the easi¬ 
est point passible. 

According to Baker, the website was 
bttiktobea>mple^ cus¬ 

tomizable and as fest as possible He said 
H was made with mobile first in mind so 
its accessible across all platforms. 

Baker said this is only Phase One for the 
eCampus as they are looking to expand 
cm the courses and services available. 

“For one thing, we want to build up 
air resource list as there are a lot more 

available, its just a matter of centralizing 
them,” said Baker. "Lang term, we want 
to see access to these courses as easily as 

On the wdisite, when you dick on a 
course it will bring you to the university's 
page obtaining hew to sign up for the 
course Baker said the goal is to bypass 
that rtep and bring students straight to 
the signup with no hassle 

"Were looking to create flexibility for 
students as opposed to an online uni¬

game Oct 25 at 1 pm ai Alumni Fidd. 

‘The giris will be on the road for the 
playoffe but we haw to waft to see whal 
they bring against Western” said Hart 
“Therds a possibility we could move op 
if we beat them and that would change 
where we are playing.” 

The Windsor mem soccer team shutout 
foe Hawks 2-0 to kickoff the two-game 
set Oct 17 before eamir^ a 3-1 win over 
Waterloo in less than desirable condi¬ 
tions the next afternoon. 

Against Laurier, ft was Michael Plo and 
Jamar Redhead who controlled the field 
and scored a goal in the first and second 
half each. 

Nlklas Bauer fed Laurier in shot at¬ 

tempts during the match, however he 
was unable to slip one past Kyle Vi- 
zirakis who successfully blocked all 
seven shots aimed his way to maintain 
a dean sheet for the game, hb 10fo shut¬ 
out of the season. 

Noah Pk> scored his first of two and 
opened the scoring for the Lancers late 
in the first haft’ against the Warriors. 
Holding a one-goal lead throughout 
most of the second half, Windsor scored 
a pair of late goals to build a three-goal 
fead with three minutes remaining, 
Lyowuna fumbo scored his seventh of 
foe year in foe 80th minute, while Pin 
scored his second of the day in the 87th 

Vmrakis bid for an 1 tfo shut-out was 
spoiled during injury time as Matthew 
Gosfca managed to fire one into the back 
of the net just before the whistle Hew 

The Lancers are now 12-2-1 on the 
season and hold a narrow edge over 
foe York lions for the top spot in the 
OUA West division. Windsor has accu¬ 
mulated 37 points with only one match 
against die rival Western Mustangs re¬ 

Hart was disappointed to acknowledge 
that no matter how they do against the 
Mustang at Alumni Fidd Oct 25, the 
lions wi most likdy dinch first place 

in the conference with their final two 
matches coming against foe ninth-place 
Algpma Thundabirds, nearly guaran¬ 
teeing sk-points for tire defending QUA 
and CIS champions and a 41 point total 
for the seasoa one ahead of the Lancers. 

"McMaster cant catch us either so weVe 
definitely got second place,” explained 
Hart. “So wel get the week off and host

tp We have some guys sitting on sus¬ 
pensions so we wiE be resting some of 
them against WestenC explained Hart

A Bit of Mozart and Schubert 

With Plenty of Skill 


Arts Editor 

Theres a fickle thing when it comes to 
writing about classical music For one, 
Tve never written, but only listened H 
would be quite a stretch to call mysdf 
versed; yet ther& a plated entbuaasm 
where the ears prop up at the sign of an 
orchestrated tune. 

The Intimate Classics, courtesy of the 
Windsor Symphony Orchestra, is a 
program where you have experts play¬ 
ing the music of masters. An Oct 18 
afternoon saw the works of Woligang 
Amadeus Mozart and Franz Schubert 
be played for a quiet, but invested Cap¬ 
itol Theatre audience With Mozart 
consisting of the first halt the set was 
divided into a four-muskian flute and 
oboe quartet With fean-Francois Rom- 
pre and Graham Madenzie at flute and 
oboe respectively each musician carried 
the talent, energy and passion needed to 
drive home a beautiful, joyful piece. 

The Mozart set allowed for musicians 
on stag? to showcase their individu¬ 
al skill, as you were aHe to deariy hear 
every note being produced from each 
instrument being played The level of 
performance carried on towards the 
work of Franz Schubert, and the eight 
differe nt musicians who performed his 
Octet in F Major, Schubert made up 
for the second half, as the hour-long set 
varied from upbeal tunes to contempla¬ 
tive ones. While the music itself had its 
fair share of repetition, the near flawless 
performance from the WSO members 
made it easy to overlook 

Personally its aD too easy to be engaged 
in work backed by sheer talent and dis¬ 
cipline, but classical is never reafly oneto 
make any converts, With youth, either 
you care to listen or you dorit In a way 
its unfortunate too, as it can be contem¬ 
plative^ reflective and wanning. Classi¬ 
cal is an evocation in on its own, on top 
ofbdng a piece of history.

Personalized Learning and Strategies 
for those with Learning Disabilities 


News Editor 

The University of Windsors Student 
Success Centre is committing to creat¬ 
ing equal opportunities and access for 
students with disabilities. 

According to thdr mission statement, 
the centre t$ also here to promote 
awareness throughout the campus and 
community as well as providing the 
services for those who need it Some of 
these services include quiet rooms and 
otoKkd testing times, audio todbooks 
and note-takers among many other 

Learning strategist and disability advise 
at the University, Rkhard Hayes, said 
most of what they see at the centre is 
what they call invisible disabilities. 

"This categorizes disabilities that arent 
obvious like ADHD, brain injuries and 
other kinds of conditions," said Hayes. 
‘■Specifically on learning disabilities, 
my job as a strategist is to hdp students 
better understand their disabilities, what 
thdr learning profile is and what their 
strengths are because when people first 
come here they focus on what thdr 
weaknesses are and we try to flip that! 5 

Along with leamit^ disabilities, the 

university also offers support for other 
disabilities including ADD and ADHD, 
psychiatric disabilities, low vision and 
blindness, deafaess and hard of hearing, 
mobility impairments, ehronk medical 
conditions and acquired brain injuries. 
According to Hayes, the success centre 
wants to help students with these dis¬ 
abilities prepare tool kits to help them 
succeed in post-secondary education 
and into the work place, 

"We want to turn individual's strengths 
into real assets when they're studying,* 
said Hayes. “For example, we haw a lot 
of students with reading disabilities with 
exceptional skills in visual processing. 
There areways to study and process text 
formats and turn their visual strengths 
into assets when dealing with reading” 

Hayes said the centre wants to hdp stu¬ 
dents with any disabilities to be able to 
find thdr stealths to use for them to 
deal with thdr disability and move for¬ 

He also said everything they do is to 
help students compete fairly, not to give 
students an advantage over others. He 
said the reasons offices like the Student 
Disability Services open is because it is 
generally realized students with disabil¬ 
ities are found to be at a disadvantage 

and ife hard for them to find ways to 
level the playing field 

There are four advisors In the office at 
the University of Windsor and when 
students are trying to figure out if they 
haw a disability and want to seek help, 
Hayes said they should make an ap¬ 
pointment to get things started 

'AH die advisors haw different lands of 
specialties and it all starts by coming in 
and chattingwith someone," said Hayea 
"In the case of a leamii^ disability; even 
if there Is no diagnosis yet, if evidence 
suggests there could be a learning dis- 
ability then well start the process to help 
students to get an assessment done.* 

Hayes said for someone to be able to 
access the help at the centre, they need 
a current assessment on file from die 
past three to five years and the specific 
requirements within that assessment 
He said its always best to come in and 
chat before any action is taken whether 
it be for a learning disability or any other 
disabilities recognized by the University

and community staple 

'When talking with distribute when 
talking with filmmakers, they know

been up to for yeaisT said WIFF Exec¬ 
utive Director Vincent Georgfe. “They

movies, thats just the bottom tine. 14 

From edgy to heartfelt, from hanwing 

to hilarious* the festival aims to cover 
aH earners and deliver an audience-fo¬ 
cused experience everybody can enjoy: 

Not to mention films like 'Bom to be 
Bhie or About Elly ! where the former 
has yet to be screened in the region

anywhere in Canada Bttt on top of the 
usual festival perks, theres also a sense of 
tradition through their signature safes.

Tradition is also being retained tftrough 
the CAN/AM Grand Prix of Cinema

enemy - cystic fibrosis. 

Children, parents, families and friends 
dressed up, gathered together and com¬ 
bined forces to raise money 7 for the Su¬ 
perhero Takeover lidd at the Godaro 
Gub on Oct 18. The night was filled 
with crime stopping, bouncy" houses 
and other activities for the young and 
dder suneiheroes to irartionate in 

The event drew in around 300 people 
and aimed to raise $20,000, which ac¬ 
cording to Essex-Kent Chapter fund 
development manager, Kristin Douglas, 
was what theywere on track for 

This is file second year weve had tire 
event and weve doubled in me” said 
Douglas, “We reaDy appreciate the chair,

A Celebration of Words and

The Capitol 'rheatre, usually known for 
concerts or film screenings, found itself 
recently boasting in literary prowess 

From Oct 15 to 18, the theatre was 
home to the 14th year of Backtest 
Windsor. An event which initially be¬ 
gan as a single afternoon session grad¬

authors about tlieir work and the writ¬

the dozens of books which were made 
available for purchase with the help and 
collaboration of local library BMioasts* 

‘Windsors a literary town,” said Book- 
fest planning committee chair Sarah far- 
m “Themk a lot of writers here and this 
grew out of a desire for focal people to 
hear more authors and to invite authors 
to come, so this is something people 

Some of the events and panels within 
the festival included a writing workshop 
with author Kelly Fbidon asvrell as a po¬ 
etry cafe. Part of the festival was also hdd 
in the Canadian Club Heritage Centre 
where authors spoke about stories with¬ 

in Windsor's prohibition-era history. 

The University of Windsor was also 
present during the festival through the

faculty and staff spoke about schokriy 
writing and peer review

A Tale of Two Cities 


The Lance Contributor 

In the recent years dties of Windsor 
and Detroit hare been undagoing sig¬ 
nificant changes in foeir infrastructure, 
both eronomkally and industrially 

A month long exhibition during No¬ 
vember is going to take place whkh 
seeks to explore foe ecological system 

of urban spaces and foe influence of art 
architecture, media, musk and film in 
the environments. The exhibition is an 
initiative of the InHorninus Research 
group who want to pursue the bound¬ 
aries between art technofogy media 
and science. 

"We are looking for submissions that 


explore the shifting nature of our urban 
arrironment” said Dr Lee Rodney, the 

associate professor of art history and vi¬ 
sual culture. 

Recently, In/Tenninus took students 
and faculty from foe School of Creative 
Arts across foe border to see a number 
of art galleries across the city of Detroit 
Students came back from foe tour fed- 
ing “enlightened" despite having per¬ 
haps visited Detroit a number of times, 
as foe visit highlighted open-air outdoor 

exhibits and how they complemented 
Detroits urban environment 

Covering themes like maker culture, 
mkio-manufecturirig, foe edge of the 
dty, transit trading cultures and so on, 
this new exhibition encourages every¬ 
one to submit their works that revolve 
around these topics. 

"The work can be local to foe Wind¬ 

sor Detroit region or from other dties 
in Canada or around the world,” said 

The project is being tunded by TheEn-

Lancers Capture Windsor Open Title 


Sports Editor 

The Lancer aoss-a>untry team put in 
another strong showing as they dom¬ 
inated die Windsor Open at Malden 
Park ewer the weekend 

Windsor captured both team titles and 
saw exceptional performances from a 
number ofkey athletes on the roster 

On the womens side, Alik Paries and 
Stelanie Smith swept the top two spots, 
pushing each other as they ran through¬ 
out the five-kilometer course* Parks 
placed first overall with a time of 1935 
while Smith was second with a time of 

Parks, 22 is a transfer from the Univer¬ 
sity of Montana and said her last couple 
of races has been the benefit of her new 
Lancets training regiment 

"When you want to prove yourself on a 
new teamit really pushes you that much 
mote and Fve seen that in my times," 
Parks said Tve been fester than I have 
in die past coupk of y^is whidi is awe¬ 
some Everyone is ready supportive here 
and the team atmosphere really makes 
you want to do your best for everybody 
Its a huge motruatoiT 

Smith said the Windsor Open was a 
'good opportunity for the women to 
work the course as a team with the OUA 
diampionships in \\teikto coming up 

“We knew the course was going to be 
physically tough so it was good for us 

mentally to work on some team tactics;' 
explained Smith, "Hopefully things will 
align once we get to OUAkT 

Smith added living a teammate like 
Parks helps her and the rest of the team 
to improve as runners. 

1 knew coming in to the season we 
would work well togetheif said Smith, 
“Ifs great to have someone right with 
you to work with during races, espedai- 
ly when Fm tired and I know 1 can’t give 
in because shes helping me along, shes 
right there with me and were pushing 
each other and ifs awesome. The goal is 
ing line at CIS champtorahip in Gudph 
~ we know we are the underdogs but 
mentally we are really on our game right 

Chelsea Viselli was Windsor's next scor¬ 
er, crossed the line in a time of 2151, 
Rounding out the Lancer scorers were 
Alison Robinson in 2239 and Sydney 
Hawkins in 2251, 

“I think if we all get out there and do 
what weeandoweeangettothe GS 
meet* Paries said "If the whole team can 
get there that would be really amazing. 
Fm really excited to see what the Cana¬ 
dian competition has to offer 

On the mem side, Nkk Falk, a Lancer 
alumni running with the University of 
Windsor Athletic Guh, captured the 
individual tide with a time of 25:08* 
Alex Ullman was the first Lancer across 
the line, finishing the dght-kifometer 
course in a time of 26:16- Taylor McAr¬ 
thur was right behind him at 2623, and

Belkmore and Paul Janikowski picked it 
up on the final lap and finished with the 
exact same lime of2637. 

With a stable of runners at their dis¬ 
posal the second-ranked mere crass 
country team does not have a problem 
with depth, only deciding who the sev¬ 
en runners will be when die Lancet toe 
the starting line at the OUA champion¬ 
ships mWaterioa 

McArthur said the Lancers used the fi¬ 
nal meet of the season to work out and 
finalize their raster for the upcoming 
OUA Championships Oct 31 in Wa¬ 

'Our top five guys arc on the OUA 
raster but there are still two open spots 
for the rest of the team to fight foif ex¬ 
plained McArthur “It was a good team 
battle out there and that is what makes 
our team great Were all working for 
each other and towards the same goal 
but at the end of the day two spots have 
to be given to two people „ we all under¬ 
stand how strai^ we are.” 

Earlier this season at the McMaster In¬ 
vitational, the Lancers had to use thdr 
sixth and seventh runners to determine 
a tiebreaker for the meet tide. A similar 
situation occurred at the 2014 OUA 
meet, which cost the Lancers the overall 

team title. 

T& not going to be five guys souring 
this yearf said McArthur. "Its going to 
be five guys scoring and two other guys 
displacing the other teams scores so itis 
a seven-man team out there during ev¬ 
ery race in diampionship season. W&e 
ranked second right now but last week 
we were ranked sixth so we could end 
up first, second or sixth at any given 
meet so we need to be a seven-man 

Should the Lancers advance, the 2015 
CIS cross-country championships will 
take place in Guelph Nov. 14

For the month of November* 
Charles Clark Square will shine 
purple for an important cause re¬ 
garding an issue estimated to af¬ 
fect one in four women in Ontario 

The Hiatus House of Windsor cel ¬ 
ebrated its second Shine the Light 
ceremony at Charles Clark Square 
on the evening of Nov. 2, lighting 
the pine tree on the square's east 
side with garlands of purple bulbs. 
According to the Hiatus House, 
the color purple is a symbol of 
courage and the lights are meant 
to be a silent beacon of support for 
women and children in abusive 
situations, 'They are also meant to 
start the conversation on erasing 
abuse for good. 

Karry Normandeau, Support Ser¬ 
vices Administrator for the Hiatus 
House said there was special con¬ 
sideration put into the location of 
the lit tree and the significance it 
would have to the community. 

“We want to start a conversation” 
said Normandeau, “The great 
thing about this particular loca¬ 
tion is that Eva, who was the one 
who brought Shine the Light to 
Windsor* she came to me with an 

idea and she said, T have a vision, 
and that vision is to turn that tree 
in Charles Clark Square purple 1 ... 
I love the lights because I imagine 
myself as a victim, and I'm in an 
abusive relationship* Vm skating 
at Charles Clark Square or I walk 
by Charles Clark Square and I 
see purple lights and I think its 
a silent reminder of support that 
shines all night long.” 

The Shine the Light event origi¬ 
nated in London* ON. live years 

ago. When shelter worker and 
survivor Eva Kratochvil heard 
about it, she asked the London 
Abused Women’s Centre if they 
would mind if Windsor had 
its own version of the ceremo¬ 
ny. They were all for it 

Executive Director Thom Rolfe 
said he was very happy to see the 
number of people standing before 
him in Charles Clark Square and 
that it would be especially import¬ 
ant for members of the communi¬ 
ty to keep the conversation going 
to spread the word about Hiatus 
House and the support it can offer 
to those in abusive or potentially 
abusive situations. 

“It’s about starting a conversa¬ 
tion* and today we start the con¬ 
versation here by lighting the tree 
and showing our silent support

ceremony in Charles Clark Square Nov 2>

to those who need it,” Rolfe said 
to the crowd in Charles Clarke 

The Hiatus House currently has 42 
beds in residence and is consider¬ 
ing opening up a second county 

location to help even more women 
and children in need 

In addition to bouts of purple 
popping up in Windsor business¬ 
es, Hiatus House will also be sell¬ 
ing purple scarves, the proceeds of 

which will go entirely to the Hia¬ 
tus House to help fund its various 
services. Scarves are available for 
purchase at the Womyns Centre at 
the University of Windsor: infini¬ 
ty scarves are $15 or two for $25, 
and non-infinity scarves are $10.

__ There are many things Santarossa said 

A University ofWindsor graduate and 
PhD. candidate in the&mhyofldnesi- 

arship at die ATHENA Scholarship 
Program and luncheon. 

The event and scholarship recognized 
young local women who have an excel 
lent academic record and are outstand- 
ing leaders in their community 

Sara Santarossa was recognized as one 
of these individuals and said she believes 
a lot of the values of ATHENA are her 
own and now she can go out in the 
community and act as an ambassador 
for them. 

”1 think through receiving the award, 
it will really give me the opportunity 

to continue mentoring and educating 
young females in the community to 
want to be leadeisT said Santarossa. M A 
big thing ATHENA believes in and is a 
really important thing to me, is to keep 
those leaders in the community 1 

Santarossa said she lias a vision for 
Windsor as a very vibrant and thriving 
community but Windsor has to be able 
to keep the leaders in die dty to be able 
to see thatvision come true. She said this 
is one of her platforms because there is 
so much good done in Windsor but 
these people who do good are leaving 
so she wants to figure out a way to keep 

she bdieves are reasons she was hon¬ 

ored with the award, such as working 
with the Heart and Stoke Foundation of 
Canada, the YMCA* Windsor Endow¬ 
ment for the Arts and Kids Sport, but 
the one she is most proud of is a project 
she has been working on since the ap» 
plication in partnership with Motivate 
Canada to provide activities for women 
in the community 

"Weve reached over 200 women 
through our events over the summer 
amd we are now planning a leadership 
conference to be hosted in February of 
2016T said Santarossa “Myself and the 
other recipients are constantly woridng 
on ammunity initiatives and building 
leadership in the community 

Santarossa said the biggest thing in¬ 
volved in the award, and for a better 
future for individuals and the dty, is a 
sense of community. 

Sara Santarossa won an ATHENA Scholarship at the ATHENA Program and Luncheon OcL 23. The event

"When I started my speech at the lun¬ 
cheon I said I was proud to be a Wind- 
sorite and I really do mean that, 71 said 
Santarossa. “A lot of young people leave 
Windsor because of lack or work or 
other reasons but 1 think iffc important 
people stay in Windsor and create their 
own opportunities because not only is 
it good for the community but ids good 
for the individual 1 ’ 

Santarossa said the goddess Athena is 

the goddess of wisdom and that is one 
of the thin^ she likes to think they have 
in common, 

“I think the feet she is the goddess of all 
these mufo-disdplinary things is why 
I fed I can relate to her so muchT said 
Santarossa. *1 do really fcdteve in aca- 
demies but Tin also very into bdi^ cre¬ 
ative and art and sports I think having 
a multifaceted look on things was the 

biggest thing I see in her and in meT 

Santarossa said she wants people to 
know to never give up She said she had 
applied for the award before and didn't 
receive it but she gpt it the second time 
so she said & important to pursue die 
things you want. 

"Dorit let your failure be the defining 
moment Grow from ydur failuresT said 
Santarossa. “Also, think outside the bm 

and be creative. Lastly be brave andkeep 
what you're doing in yourcommunityT 

Santarossa said the biggest thing is to 
inspire the next generation and its very 
important because they are the smartest 
but the most vulnerable with technolo¬ 

l *Be who you are and not like someone 

be motivated to make a difference.”

CUPE 1001 Wants to 

Figure it out Together 

Member thinks of recent occurrences as a ‘campaign against CUPE ’ 


News Editor 

CUPE 1001 member Trina Durham is 
saying there are lot of issues the organi¬ 
zation has been dealing with in fire past 
10 years, especially housekeepb^, 

Durham* a worker* secretary and for- 
mer president of CUPE 1001* sakl there 
has been a "campaign a^inst CUPE” 

T know we have some bad apples, ev¬ 
ery workplace does," 1 said Durham. “We 
recognize that and were tryir^ to work 
with administration to work it all out I 
want to fix this and I think they’re recep¬ 
tive to it but 1 thinktheyte only receptive 

to what they want" 

Durham said there was a meeting in 
August where they asked administra¬ 
tion if there were any more buildings be¬ 
ing contracted out and they didn't give 
CUPE any straight answers. Two weeks 
after, six more buildings were contract¬ 
ed out from CUPE 

“ft seems like our duties are slowly being 
taken awajf said Durham, 

Durham also said die feels like some in¬ 
dividuate in administration are making 
issues where there are none 

Durham said they had 120 people in 
fulltime housekeeping and they are now 

down to 6& 

"Another issue were having is people 
just quitting and leaving because they 
have no idea what is going on and 
theyre scared," said Durhara 

Durham said die thinks the system 
needs to be run via a pyramid system, 
where people start out in food services 
and if something were to open in house¬ 
keeping, afcod service person oould ap- 
ply and it would in turn create more jobs 
in food service. 

T think the ultimate gtiai of the univer¬ 
sity b to just get rto of us that way they 
draft have to worry about us at all,” said 

John Coleman, fire schools director of 
public aflaits and commurucatk>ns sakl 
there were 12 positions in discussion 
that were moved but there was no one 
in the union who was laid off 

“The collective bargaining agreement 
was Mowed to the TT said Coleman. 
"All the people who were affected by the 
situation were redeployed within the 

Cokman said that is the bottom line 
and the important thing is no one has 
lost his or her job in the process of ev¬ 
erything that is happening with CUPE 

Coleman said the goal of the university 

is to run operations efficiently and to 
meet the needs of the campus commit- 



"To fix this, I think you need both sides 
wodai^tofixiC said Durham "I think 
right now there is only one side working 
to fix this and i6 usT 

According to Durham, the open and 
honest communication they prom¬ 
ised is a He to her and she hopes to see 
things fixed and administration taking 
an active part in mending the broken

Canterbury Hosts First Annual Trivigala 

Canterbury College hasted their first annual Trivagata at the. WalkerviUe Brewery Oct. 27.

Arts Editor 

Cantertxny College is no stranger to 
gala events* whkh arc a vital part of their 
annual itinerary, but this year they've de¬ 
cided to shake thing? up a little by' add¬ 
ing in some friendly competitioa 

“We iK>rmaJly do something a little 
more traditional^ said residence and 
program assistant Laura Bezaiie. 'This 
year we wanted to tty a change of pace 
that reflected more of Canterbury's per¬ 
sonality in the comniimity atnx>sphere' ] 

In an attempt to further the alleges 
name within the community Canter¬ 
bury hosted their first ever Trivi^k at 
the WalkerviUe Brewery Oct 27. Tickets 
were sold quickly, sedng more than 100 
people pairing a night of dinner with a 
few rounds of trivia. While the college 
is in dose proximity to the University of 
Windsor, not many know of the college 
services, which range from its Angtkan 
chaplaincy to its accommodations to¬ 
wards UWindsor students. Beyond the 
entertainment value, members of the 
oofl^e hope to use trivia as a way to ap¬ 
peal to thebroad community spectrum. 

"Canterbury has been here for a very 
longtime, but not a lot of people know 
what Canterbury does, so an event like 
this makes it dearer as to the contribu¬ 
tion it carries;' said administrative assis¬ 
tant Jaddyn Bezaire. 

Eighteen teams of eight participated in 
the brim Be it inadvertently or other¬ 
wise, the event also shined a light on a 
growing trivia scene within the com¬ 
munity Under the moniker Mack Flash 
Trivia, events have been popping up 
from Windsors downtown core to as 
tar as Amherstburg, tending to numer¬ 
ous locations, whkh almost cover the 
entire week 

"When I first started, I used to get 20 to 
30 people a wed: and I was very proud 
of mysdt and now we averse maybe 
five shows a week,” said trivia host Fran¬ 
cois Jacques, 

Jacques has trivia questions structured 
in a way where every member witlirn 
a team can be poised to contribute in 
thdr own way As trivia questions can 
range from mathematics to pop culture, 
it not only paves the way for teamwork, 
but also creates a direct and highly soda! 
atmosphere for those participating. 

"Theres nights where I notice that its 
better to just let file room be, and all 1 do 
is ask questions and guide the game, and 
my banter will be lower because ft drives 
people to talk,” Jacques said Tfe almost 
like Em making topics for them to talk 
about at the tabled 

On top of all the ftm and j^mes, the 
event also carried a silent auction for a 
variety of prizes from hockey tickets to 
paintings. Plans for additional events are 
currently in the works which will place 
them more in the spotlight, all while 
maintaining the core traditions of the 

"Were binging in a different segment of 
the population to our more traditional 
kinds,” said Canterbury principal Gor¬ 
don Drake. "Were just pleased that its 
worked so weU, and it speaks 1 think for 
the future of Canterbury College” 

University Holds Workshop to Show 
Advantages of Online Pro gram

The program offers the ability to live 
stream and record classes as well as 
many other applications including on¬ 
line interactive blackboards, discussion 
groups and project groups students can 
access and professors can oversee and 
controL The program also allows for in¬ 
teraction between peopfe streaming and 
the live classroom and will open up a 
new possibility for students during trav¬ 
el and even when professors are away 

The workshop was set up to try and grt 
more professors and students involved

them how useful the tool i$T said Lu- 
hricte "This is a great asset for both stu¬ 
dents and instructors and were hoping 
more people start usix^ it for the benefit 
ofboth parties,” 

Ijubricksaid the biggest thing is students 
can access the recordings onedures,not 
just the streams. He said it will be good 
especially for students out in the county 
who have one lecture and don't want to 
have to drive in all the time or when rfs 
bad weather and its dangerous for them 
to come out to the University from such 
a distance, 

Its interactiveT said Nkk Backer, di¬ 
rector of file Office of Open Learning, 
"Students can raise thdr hands, ask 
questions and be involved wiffi the 
lecture from home with this program 
so the argument that it will encourage 
students to be lazy is very ineffective as 
science has showed otherwise and this 
interaction wiU enhance teaming” 

Blackboard Collaborate wiE abo allow 

and meet with students more easily to 
the program 

“Its available to everyone and ifs a very 
sample program to use,” said Baker, 
“We’re making it as easy as possible to 
access through these workshops and 
were hoping to see more use this be¬ 
cause it costs nothing and ft will only 
benefit The program is very easy and 
if you can point and dick then you can 
use it” 

Baker also said the program is platform 
friendly and works across aB mediums 
including phones, tablets and comput¬

The university^ own cyding association 
received some distinction through an 
annual report 

The Coundi of Ontario Universities 
recently disdosed their going green 
report, which places a spotlight on the 
Univeraty of Windsors efforts in be¬ 
coming a friendlier place for cyclists. 
While the cyding association has 
been around for a little over two years, 
the members have wasted little time 
in making significant strides to serve 
cydists in and around campus, 

Tt was a good feeling to be included 
in foe report? said Kris Owen, who 
currently heads the cyding association. 
This is the first time weVe been high¬ 

The University of Windsors Cyding 
Association was officially formed in 
September of 2013. Through com¬ 
munity engagem ent and scheduled 
sessions, the UWCA aims to educate 
those on bike safety tips from wearing 
the proper safety gear to learning the 
rules of the mad. The UWCA was also 
responsible in having Fhtit stations add¬ 
ed to foruuglKHrteamp^ 
cydists to make minor repairs on their 
bte at a ntomenfe notice, 

Owen said the organization has shrunk 
in see due to several members hav¬ 
ing graduated since its formation, but 
tiuough word of mouth and dub days, 
the association looks to grow and con¬ 
tinue in educating people on proper 
biking procedures. 

Theres a lot of different rules that wed 

like people to know? Owen said "Be¬ 
cause weve heard ot people getting in 
accidents, and we really want to change 

One of three Fixit stations is located outside the university's engineering building. The University of Windsor's Cycling Association played a hand 

in getting these stations set itp, aiding cyclists in performing minor bike repairs.

Annual Boo at the U Strengthens Campus Community

With the university's annual Halloween

This year's Boo at the U found itself in 
a packed Windarc room Oct 29, An 
event whkh has been occurring for 
over 10 years and counting many of the 
umversitys staff members brought their

Artspeak Gallery Adorned 
With Colorful Iconographies 


The Lance Contributor 

A local jplfery had die opportunity to 
showcase a number of paintings, sculp¬ 
tures and handicrafts last week 

Rashmi Dadwal has previously dis¬ 
played pieces around Windsor in librar¬ 
ies, hospitals, community centers and 
markets and recently brought her ex¬ 
hibit to the Artspeak Gallery. Having no 
training in the field of visual arts, Dadw- 
aFs art emphasizes on the notion that ev¬ 
eryone has a talent it just happens that 
she pruned it herself rather nurturing it 
unda- someones guidance. 

Most of her paintings include religious 
konographtes ofChrisL Mother Mary 
the Hindu God Lord Ganesha and so 

"1 am not an teonographer nor do I 
know about Christianity, but 
comes when the time comes wiim you 
start doing it and automatically God 
hdped me to do r £' said Dadwal 

g}ass images of Christ with vivid color 
patterns we see in churches. 

"The paintings and church windows 
look so good and that has been a 
source of inspiration in my own works!* 

The artist has experimented wifo wood 
paintings and now' she has ddved into 
achieving her talents on canvases, For 
her the people who come and look at 
her wotk the viewers give meaning to 
her artwork She learns about Christi¬ 
anity and the connotations of her work 
from them 

When it comes to handkxafts, Dadwal 
has used discarded leftover objects to 
create a story and die same can be said 
reading her other works. Her entighi- 
enment and bang exposed to Chris¬ 
tianity has led her to fuse diversity in 
her work and interpret it along with her 
own ndigsoa H&nduism. 

Today*! find inspiration and healing 
from religions, culture, and humanity 
alike, and seek to tdl a positive story that 
am resonate with all audkncesT said

The Working Combination 


Arts Editor 

It was a quiet and dassy evening when 
the Waikenilie Brewery played host to a 
unique tasting session 

it has always been natural for people to 
mix wine with their cheese, but this time 
around wine happened to be replaced 
with craft beer on the evening of Oct 
26* It was then where 16 people were 
treated with numerous combinations 
of craft beer courtesy of the Walkervilk 
Brewery and artisanal cheese provided 
by southwestern Ontarids Cheese Bar 
With six combinations to present, they' 
were catered in pairs and in between 
timed intervals* The length in between 
each serving allowed testers to not oniy 
consume* but also to savor tire combos 
such as the sweedy aged cheese of Black 
Pepper with the malty, easy drinkabilfty 

i This is a Belgian wit, with orange peel 

and coriander notes, and we actually 
added orange peel onto the beer itself

first time they attended a tasting session 
of craft beer and cheese. Some l ev eled In 
the caring and thoughtfulness behind 
each pairing as both the cheese and 
beers constantly “accented each other”

were weB aged, textured and flavorful

Film Review:

For Goosebumps fans, this movie pfob- 
My sounded like a great i dea when the 
first rumors of its creation started dr- 
adating a little over a year ago: finally, 
someone was going to give our child' 
hood honor series the cinematic atten- 
tke and effects it deserves. 

[fyoure looking for a teen horror-com¬ 
edy with some good banter and decent 
acting and ready tame on the creepy 
scale, this movie is for yoa However; if 
you're a longtime fen looking for an em¬ 
bodiment of the books or the re-visita¬

bordering on the dangerous side After 
hearing what he believes to be Han- 
nabfc screams a few nights later, he and 
a frimd break into her house and dis¬ 
cover the Goosebumps manuscripts, in 
the process accidentally unlocking Hie

and releasing the monster into the red

book and release all the monsters on die 
town, tfs up to Zadi* his friends, and R. 
L Stine himsdf to hunt down and con¬ 
tain the monsters once more before they 
destroy the town 

From what Tve heard Stine has been 
sent scripts over the years and turned 

scary or too gimmidey and not the right 
mixture of both, which is what he was 
dying to achieve. The script he finally 
decided on is the Goosebumps we now 
have in theatres. 

Its great that he tried, but I have to say 
it is absolutely not what 1 think Goose- 
bumps deserved Short of a few ap¬ 
pearances of some familiar characters 
{and bad CGI to boot), the script does 
nothing for the old novdlas or the show.

to be a movie for the fens, which is a

Theatre Review - Doctor Faustus 


A ns Editor 

Centuries prior to the classic pky writ¬ 
ten by Johann Geothe, Christopher 
Mariowes Doctor Faustus is the ear¬ 
liest adaptation of the story of Faust 
The highly successful yet unfulfilled 
scholar who makes apart with the devil 
is an iconic retelling, which has seeped 
through numerous literary works. On 
tap of it involving a deep moral dilem¬ 
ma of a central character who tails to 
keep everything under control ife a 
celebration of the macabre and ail of its 
sinister delights. Its only timely for Kor¬ 
da Artistic Productions to put this play 
on during the Halloween season, but its 
also unfortunate the production Ms to 
properly live up to the dassic star) 7 . 

The lighting direction stays strong 
throughout, and it manages to hit the 
odd story beat or two. But the moment 
it seldom succeeds in mustering is al¬ 
most muffled out entirely by the myriad 
of issues it carries across the spectrum. 
Perhaps the biggest, most inherent flaw 
is the narrative direction. The story of 
Faust has been one presented in a vari¬ 
ety of genres. This particular productio n 
decides to oombine the tragic conflict 
of Faustus with some comedy; yielding 
poor results. 

Scene transitions are constantly jarring, 
as the comedy and drama make no ef¬ 
forts to compliment each other and hdp 
bring the play into cohesion. It certainly 

doesn't hdp when neither aspect man¬ 
ages to be effective. The performance 
kdk any dramatic heft, coming off as 
stale, The humor, on top of being mo re 
awkward than funny is reliant on slap- 
stick style sequences, which dorit fit into 
the story whatsoever Pair this with the 
pky still expecting you to take Fausiuss 
dilemma seriously and you're left with a 
heavily disjointed narrative which make 
the pk/s episodic nature more detach¬ 
ing than it should have been 

The creative decisions to reinforce the 
production are frankly bizarre In a sto¬ 
ry" about a man who ddves in the black 
arts, dealing with demons in Hell you 
get some awfidly goofy looking crea¬ 
ture designs which make menacing 
characters look foolish. Theres also the 
constant use of music samples from the 
band Nine Inch Nails. At least ahandfiil 
of the bands songs are teed throughout 
the production, and theres realty no 
word to describe how much of a jarring 
set piece it comes off to be. In many" 
ways, it is a bewikteringty contusing cre¬ 
ative decision, whkh isn't even remotely 

Its difficult to pinpoint where it afl falls 
apart because nothing was really prop¬ 
erty built in the first place. The whole 
affair Mt unoiganized from the start, 
laitang a steady trajectory in an area 
you don’t want to find yourself in The 
lighting direction is the one a^>ect in 
this production, whkh doesn't seem to 
aitirety suffer, as it was responsible for 

Rut it

Movie Review: Mr. Holmes 


The Lance Contributor 

Sir Arthur Conan Dayfes iconic char¬ 
acter has made many appearances be¬ 
fore and die mythology of the detective 
of 221B Street has made the character 
became a quintessential image both in 
literature and pop culture. 

Directed by Bill Condon, wdl known 
for films like 'Twilight Breaking Dawn," 
"Dreamgjrts” and so oa “Mr Holmes" 
revolves around the life of the detectives 
retirement years when he is old and his 
memory is failing him The film is an 
emotkml drama that tries to encap¬ 
sulate the struggles Sheriock Holmes 
is going through as he tries to recall his 
final case which lead to his retirement, 
afl the while battling loss of memory 
Sir Ian Mckdlea die veteran actor slips 
under the skin of Sheriock Holmes and 
provides a perspective you haven't seen 
before in the characters many incarna¬ 
tions. Special mention needs to be given 
to the supporting cast, namely Laura 
linney as the housekeeper Mrs, Mon¬ 
ro and her son Roger* played by Milo 
Parker. As a child artl£, Milo Parker as 
young Roger could be considered as 
what Holmes could have been when he 
was his age because of his determined 

The year is 1947 and Sherkxk Holmes 
after a long trip fern Japan arrives at a 
farmhouse to live the remainder days 
of his life as a reduse, Mrs, Munra and 
her son Roger live in the secluded farm¬ 
house to take care of Holmes Arriving 
with a plant called prickly ash, which 
could hdp him in improving his mem¬ 
ory, Sheriock wants to write the details 
of his last case the way it actually hap¬ 
pened and not as a dramatized version 
of his friend Dr, Watson. Tliroughout 
die film you see a number of flashbacks 
that delve into Holmess last case and his 
journey’ to Japan, During his stay at the 
fannhouse, Sheriock takes a special lik¬ 
ing towards Roger because of the young 
boy s capability in observing the finer 
details of things around him and his 
persistent curiosity. 

Sheriodk Holmes throughout his dif¬ 
ferent renditions, be it through films or 
novels, has been known for possessing 
the art of deduction and his ideology of 
giving importance to feet over fiction as 
a result of which he exhibits no emotion 
and is calculative at best. Mr Holmes 

who has been solving cases all his life 
with the intention of being deprived of 
the most common of emotions* love. 
Sir Ian Mckdten ^ves a flawless per¬ 
formance yet ag^in and you fed for his 
loneliness and his desire to remember 
his last case. This time around* his ene¬ 
my is his decaying health and die man 
end created by his best friend 

The flashbacks act as passages of time 
running paralld to each other and help 
give an insight to Holiness own psydie. 
Bill Condon uses these tools to flesh out 
the diaracter of Sherlock and they are 
integrated cohesively in the narration. 
The paring of the film overall is stow; 
but it is intentional for a good reason. 
The lack of mystery may sound as an 
Addfles 1 heel for die film, but It is more 
about Sheriock Holmes than about the 
cases themsdves 

Mr Holmes is another brilliant perfor¬ 
mance by Sir Ian Mckeflen and another 
feather in Shertod& hat ft is an evolu¬ 
tion of the famous detective* a journey 
to contemplate life by means of warmth 
and heart and not just mind alone 

tends to show ahumane side of a man

University Holds Town Hall 
to Talk About Refugees 


News Editor 

The University ofWindsor held a Town 
Hail to discuss how thdr campus can 
hdp out with the Syrian crises and what 
difference they can make as humanitar¬ 

The goal of the Oct 27 event was to dis¬ 
cuss ways the university could hdp and 
get inspiration from a current refugee 
student on campus - Ghai Mathiang. 

‘Its amazing what tittle we do here can 

change a lot for other peoples fives,” said 
Mathiang d Tt can be a change that will 
last a life time” 

Mathiang lived as a refugee before the 
University' of Windsor brought him 
over Mathiang has graduated from his 
bachelors and is currently woddng on 
Ills master^ in neuroscience 

T understand that when we do some- 
thing for refugees it is not as little as we 
see itT said Mathiang T came here and, 
at file moment, I can support my family 
and they are not living the same as they 

were, although they are still refugees.” 

Mathiang sad there are many things the 
university can do to help, the main thing 
being getting four refugees to school a 
year instead of the current one 

There are a lot of scholars out there and 
I know it is compbtfor the university to 
bring them with families,” said Maih¬ 
iang f Tf we can bring these scholars 
from Syria currenify, we will be able to 
hdp them bring their families over and 
also to hdp Windsor and the area they 
live in over here.” 

Guest speaker at the event, and former 
Canadian diplomat, Mike MoUoy, said 
Windsor was the initiator of bringing 
in refugees with the Vietnamese and he 
hopes to see a simitar process pky out 
with the Syrian crises. 

Teopk are in this Syrian refugee crises 
for the long haul lest the archangel G&- 
brid himsdf intervenes,” said MoBay 
"We have to face the feet that this is a 
problem and students will be hearing 
about this 10 years into their careers. We 
might as weB start to get org^iiaed and 
helping out the individuals who need it” 

MoBoy said 50 per cent of the refugees 
are children and they grow up with bro¬ 
ken childhoods. He said the main goal 
should be to bring m vulnerable fami¬ 
lies with children and to get fills rolling, 
meetings like the Town Hall at the uni¬ 
versity need to start happening across 

The presentations ended and the meet¬ 
ing continued with ideas and discussion 
of what they can do and how to move 
on with the Syrian crises. The majority 
response was to h4>autand talk to gov- 
eminent to get fire process roflii^. 


Men’s Soccer Suffers Heartbreak 

to McMaster in OUA Quarters

The Windsor Lancer menksoccerteamk 
spectacular season came to an end with 
a 1-0 toss to the McMaster Marauders in 
the OUA quarterfinals at Akimni Field 

A penalty kick was awarded to MeMas- 
te* * after an apparent handball inside 
liie 18-yardboK. Gersi Xhuti played the 
hero as he placed the ball to the oppo¬

Lancer head coach Steve Hart said itwas 
a sad way to go out for a tom that bad 
set their sights much further than the 
OUA quarters Hart wasn't shy to voice 
his displeasure with the offi dating of the 
match other 

"We didrit deserve to lose tonight but 
ouroffida! made it all about him," said 
Hart ‘"And it is not sour grapes. When 
you ga beat by a team and you deserve 
% you shake their hands and you walk 
away ft sours a good season,” 

Hart explained his frustration towards 
the official was not an isolated incident 

Itery coach in any spout wfU trfhyou 
when you lose a game and you lose it

by an official, you take ftT Hart said. 1 
wouldrifc say a word but this official has 
come in hoe time and time again and 
just constantly does not official proper¬ 
ly Referees are there to make the game 
flow not to make it about them. That 
just spoils the game at this level When 
the stakes are this high, you need proper 

officials who can mate the big eaDs! 1 

Hart was quick to acknowledge the 
strides his program made by accom¬ 
plishing what they did during file 2015 
OUA season 

“The men and women both moved 
forward from last year and as a coach, all 
you can ever want is to move forward,” 
said Hart “Both teams went out in the 
fftst round ayearagoand now they both 
went out in the second So we’re gomg 
all the way nest year, fm so proud df 
both programs’ 7 

The first half saw the visiting Maraud¬ 
ers play a solid game defensively as the 
Lancers only managed two shots on net 
in the first 45 minutes.

on the board, but a wall of Marauders 
blocked a free kick from right outside

Women-Only Boxing Classes Packs Punch for Community 


Sports Editor 

A former Lancer track and cross county 
standout is putting her best punch for¬ 
ward to promote fitness, setfconfidance 
and ton for local women erf all demo¬ 

Meaghan Marten, 22, first stepped in¬ 
side a boxing gym to pkk up her boy¬ 
friend Ricardo Rodriguez, who is a 
member ofBotder City Boxing dub on 
Drouiltaid Ave After string on the side¬ 
lines, Marton said she decided to partic¬ 
ipate and just like that, shewas hooked 

*1 used to go and just sit there and wait 
for him tobe done,” Marton said “Then 
I got more interested in it so 1 took a 
couple dasses and I kept wanting to do 
more and more at the gym because it 
is non-profit ft is a realty great organi¬ 
zation and has such a femity-environ- 
rnent, but 1 sawthe need for more thir^ 
to be done” 

This past summer, Maiton ran four 
separate womens booting dasses, which 
saw increased attendance as the sessions 
continued Between 20 and 30 women 
of all ages came to the dasses which 
prompted Marton to organize more 
boxing dasses as the fall drew doser 

T wanted to do ft again because we had 
such agreat response?' said Marton. Tm 
the chair erf Students Advancing Wom¬ 
en m Sports so we organized a fundrais¬ 
er which aligns file values of wo men in 
sport and we decided to have a boxing 
event ft wasn't so much about raising 
the money but more about getting 
women in the gym. Not a kft of wom¬ 
en get to box and its only five dollars 
per class and we ended up raising over 


What makes these dasses so special 
is the strictly female environment, so 
women who wear jihads could come 
and literally let thdr hair down, a rare 
opportunity thought up by BCBC di¬ 
rector Alison Hunter, a former Canadi¬ 

an thampksa 

"[Hunter] did dasses with women of 
all demographics before and it dropped 
off so I was glad to pick it up and do it 
again,” Marton said "Those women 
really loved ft. We had about 16 people 
but they had never been to the gym be¬ 
fore so that is all that reaBy matters.They 
all left sweating and that is my biggest 
fifing, I want them to leave knowing 
they had a good wotkout” 

Mow instructors inckafe Hunter, Amy 
Tunks (another retired professional) 
and Cdia Gagnon , a Windsor police of¬ 
ficer Marton bdieves the accepting en¬ 
vironment helps those ra 
embrace it and the basing community 
as a whole, 

"They all said theywanted to crane back 
so that is huge,” Marton said *They get 
to lean? the basics of boxing ^ Tm still 
learning how to boat so 1 motivate a lot 
and bdng an athlete, I fove that stuff" 

Marton said die saw an opening for 

womens only dasses when she noticed 
other time slots throughout the week 
were co-ed and often saw the same 
group of skilled boxers in attendance 
With many of her participants being 
new to the sport, Marton found ft ap¬ 
propriate to have thdr own time slot, 
which allows them to opportunity to 
learn at their own pace 

"I didrit want to throw these women, 
who are already intimidated, into a mix 
rrfdifleient skilled boxersT said Marton. 
“So we're reaBy trying to get weekly or 
biweekly womens dasses as a perma¬ 
nent fixture at the gyra* 

With Border City being a toIuh- 
teer-based organization, Marton admit¬ 
ted it can be difficult to schedule these 
dasses but it is not for a lade of enthusi¬ 
asm among those who participate 

"Were only open when someone has a 
key or if someone goes into the gym^ 
said Marton. "But we’re getting really 
good feedback, all of the women ask 
me when we wiD have our next dass or 

when we can do ft a^ta Even people 
who miss dasses have checked in to see 
when the next will be” 

The dasses also give participants an in- 
creased education in fitness. As a former 
crosscountry and long-distance runner, 
Marton knows her way around a gym 
but said turning to boxing really in¬ 
creased her level erf fitness. Marton also 
said she would like to see an increase of 
UWmdsor female students to take file 
time and try something new. 

"Boxing is so mud? different than any 
other physical activity* said Marton. 
'Were teaching these women new 
thing and we're teaching you why it is 
important When Amy teaches besting

sion, which saw goaltender Mike Doan 
make 30 saves and a 6-2 victory the next 
evening with Blake Richard making 31

after suffering various injuries. For him

Lancer Volleyball Teams Fall 
To Gryphons On Halloween 


Sports Editor 

Both Lancer volleyball teams suffered 
identical straight-set fosses on the road 
at the hands of the Gudph Gryphons 
this past weekend 

The Lancer women tried to continue 
their strong play from a week prior 
against the Brock Badgers but started 
the match sfowfy once again and ulti¬ 
mately fell 3-0 to the hosts with scons 
of 16-25, 20-25 and 21-25. The mens 
squad is still looking to win their first 
match of the season after dropping 
three tightly contested sets against the 
Gryphons, with scores of 22-25, 20-25 
and 22-25. 

Lancer meres head coach James Gravdle 
said his young squad tooka lot of posi¬ 
tives from the match against a division 

“We had seme chances but wefye had 
trouble stewing people so thaft been 
a big thing,” Gravdle said “We weren't 
able to block very effectively so we have 
to operate at a very h^h efflekneyoflfen- 
sivdy to make up fix it Thai is asking a 
kit of our passing and settii^ to get the 

attackers intoa spot where they can hit it 

Gravdle said the stellar play of middle 
Josh Edwards was just the banning of 
what he expects to see from the fifth year 
and predicted another big gime from 
him this weekend when the Western 
Mustang come to town for the Wind¬ 
sor mens home-opener match Nov. 13. 

“Josh was absolutely dominant against 
GudphT Gravdle said Ifs nice to have 
Josh back for his fifth season after many 
years away Be was hitting baits as if he 
were still in warm-ups, in the match he 
was pretty fon to watch but we wasted 
that effort We need to keep getting bet¬ 
ter a Me bit everyday because we are 
young and bolting to improve so we 
make sure we are moving in the right 

After beginning the season with three 
away games at York, Nipissing and 
Gudph, Gravdfe agreed it would be 
good for the team to get experience 
playing on their home court at the St 
Denis Centre. 

“Were looking forward to the 
home-opener because it is a chance for 
us to play in front of more family friends 

and students as wdT Gravdle said 
“We will definitely be looking to take 
advantage of the home court Starting 
with three games on the road has been 
tough for us and we’ve had some hard 
luck. Weve had chance and have been 
leading qufte a few of these sets and hav¬ 
en't been able to put them away so we're 
hoping having a home game will help 
us out” 

Even though the Lancers have begun 
the season 0-3, Gravdk historically has 
coached teams whose skills build up 
throughout the seasoa 

“Weve always been a second half team,” 
said Gravdk “We focus more on 
skill-building in the first half knowing 
that seven out of 11 teams make it to 
the playoffs. So, tf we can get ourselves 
into the dance, we are hoping we can be 
poking at that time. We want our abili¬ 
ty to lx that We arerit deficient in our 
skills; we just need to improve on them 
every day. Were just not as sharp six-on- 
sk as we wiEbeialer this sea^ 
fi%fcy the end of the season we will be a 
much better team than we are nowT 

First serve against the Mustang Nov 6 
is scheduled for 7 ptm. 

Womeris volleyball head coach Lucas 
Hodgson said another slow start to a 
match resulted in early deflate Windsor 
could not come back from 

“We were down 7-1 in the opening set 
and we've done that in every matdi so 
fori' Hodgson said. “We dorit seem to 
be mentally into the match until were 
down a couple of points and that is 
something we have been talking about 
as a team. With how young we are... we 
are going to be bad some days and better 
some others. We didn't play horrible; the

The Windsor Spitfires finished the 
month of October with a 9-2-3 reconi 
while playing !4gamesin3i days. 

Head coach Rocky Thompson and 
the Spits rounded up the month by re¬ 
cording four out of six points, playing 
three games in a two-and-one-half day 
span against the Flint Firebirds, London 
Knights and Guelph Storm 

Garrett Hudson shut out the Hint 
Firebirds in his first game as a Spitfire 
and Daniil Vertiy scored two goals in a 
3-0 victory at the WFCU Centre Oct 
29. Windsor went on the road to Lon¬ 
don and Budweiser Gardens bit came 
home on the wrong side of a 3-3 final 
Oct 30. 

The Spitfires hadlitik time to regroup as 

the WFCU Centre hosted a Halloween 

matinee game die next afternoon wSha 
1 pm start Windsor showed no signs 
of rust and took a 2-0 lead in the open¬ 
ing period with goals fora Christian 
Fischer and Andrew Rums on their way 
to a.5-1 route. 

Tm just very happy with our per¬ 
formance and our effort hereT said 
Thompson, "This weekend was a hard 
weekend for us. We needed that first 
game against Hint and we got it We 
knew it was goingto be hard in London, 
they were ready We were able to make 
it dose in that one and against Guelph, 
in our teams opinion it is a must-win 
pme. We needed to dome out of here 
with a victory and Guelph was rested 
this week." 

The Storm were looking to hak a sev¬ 
en-game losing skid when they visited 
Windsor on Halloween. Where they 
went looking for treats* they only found 
tricks in the form of daunting Spitfire 
defencemen and relentless forwards. 

Coming in against Gudph, centre Lo¬ 
gan Brown was almost certainly the 
most rested of Windsors skaters, as he 
was coming back from a five-game sus¬ 
pension he received by the league for a 
major interference penalty 

"Coming back I had a lot of energy

so 1 was lucky to get back out there with 
Fischer and [Brad] Latour We picked 
up right where we left off* 

The reunited line only needed the 
opening 35 seconds to light the lamp 
and Brown finished with one goal and 
two assists. Combined the trio had eight 
points and were a plus right rating. 

“I think our start was the most inport- 
ant thingT said Thompson* ‘"We had to 
come out and really set the pace in the 
first period because we knew our ener¬ 
gy levels would get lower as the g^me

try and come back* they always try and

“Were happy that we are doing so well 
right now and were just looking to keep

Letter To The Editor 

Thousands of blue and pink flags were set up in the residence quad Oct. 21 which signified the amount of child deaths each year as a result of 

performed abortions. The display sparked protest by numerous pro-choice advocates . 

(Photo by //Hani Yassine} 

and as a dub we are very supportive of 


3rd Year Phrlosophy/Greek 
and Roman Studies Com¬ 
bined Honour Students 

As a member oflifeChoice I would like 
to respond to the lances article about 
our flag display 

Now, like the lances article said our 
groupwas setting up dags as a memorial 
for the appiummaidy IjOOjOOO prebam 
children killed by abortions every year 
in C janada* and to raise awareness about 
the bekoflaws in Canada. In response 
to this, people called us land-choice* 
and stated we were being "judjpnav 
fcaT to women on campus who had 
had abortions, and eventually we were 
requested !o leave the location that had 
been assigned to us by * 1 the Dean, before 
we even managed to put all the flags up. 

I find the term artfi-choicer to be a bit 
misleading. We do not oppose choice 
generally speaking as I am sure every¬ 
one is really aware 1 for one am quite 
in favor of everyone at file mh«3y 
choosing whit classes they wish to lake, 
who they want to have as friends, what 
they want to eat and so on and so forth. 
Yet when ft comes to abortion, I am not 
in favor of that particular choice Why 
the sudden change in altitude? Asa gen¬ 
eral rule, I oppose any choice that harms 
an innocent ukirvxiual 1 am opposed 
to hamiii^ bom people just as much 
as I am opposed to harming prebom 
people; it just so happens that in Cana¬ 
da it is tte latter gpoup who has no legal 

As to whether or not we were bek^> 
judgmental, I understand why people 

might think that. Vfomen who have 
chosen abortion, or people who were 
involved in the dedson making pro¬ 
cess, must have had a tremendously 
difficult time making that derision. It 
is not our goal to judgp these women 

groups like Project Rachel and Silent 
No More, which are devoted to help¬ 
ing post-abortive wumen Our display 
never called out anyone it never made 
any statements about why these wom¬ 
en make those derisions, it only drew 

attention to the amount of abortions in 
Canada and the legal status of abortion 
in Canada, 

I can confidentially speak on bAaif of 
LifeChofoe in saying&al we have noill 
wiB for post-abortive women, and we 
wish them nothing but healing. Our 

facts of tiiis issue in our country, and we 
were silenced and censured for sharing 
our beftefs. The members of I ileCboice 
are as entailed to share information and

Immigration Law is 
Something to Look Into 


News Editor 

The University of Windsor^ law section 
opened up a panel this past week to in¬ 
troduce job options many in law may 
not have thought about - immigration 

The panel discussed the perks of go¬ 
ing into immigration law the different 
kinds of jobs the endeavor may entail 
and how to be prepared if you wish to 
go into the occupation. All of the panel¬ 
ists came from positions in immigration

immigration population, is said to be a

Film Review: Minions 

An adventure worth its weight in “bananas. ” 

few But all these famous masters meeta 
tragic end because of the unintentional 


The Lance Contributor 

Minions, a prequd to tire “Despicable 
Me” franchise IbSows the adventures of 
the cute yellow creatures who happen 
to love bananas. You will notice the ab¬ 
sence of their evil master* Gru and his 
adopted daughters as this film focuses 
on the origins of the creatures. Directed 
by Kyle Baida and Pierre Coffin, this an¬ 
imated ffidc much like the "Despicable 
Me” movies is worth watching because 
the charisma and mishaps the creatures 
gd caught up in is adorably chaotic. 

Before the existence of Gru, the minions 
Irave been known to serve evil masters 
like a T-Rex in prehistoric times, Drae- 
ula and Napoleon Bonaparte, to name a 

calamities created by the mixtions. Now 
they are left wilhout a master and the 
creatures, in order to cope with their 
depression, move to the colder confines 
of Antarctica Stuart, Bob and Kevin are 
chosen by their tribe to seek another evil 
master in order to get thdr lives back on 

The trio sets out on a perilous journey 
and you get to see a lot of unprecedented 
situations our yellow minions indulge in 
along the way Since the minions usu¬ 
ally" talk in gibberish, slapstick humor 
is heavily relied upon, which works for 
the most part After a tot of tribulations, 
the trio ends up in villain con, an equiv ¬ 
alent of comic con, where super villains 

gather. Ending up with a villain named 
Scarlet (voiced by Sandra Bullock), they 
arrive in London where they are given 
orders to steal the crown of Queen Eliz¬ 
abeth II 

Knowing the past exploits of the cute 
creatures, things obviously don't go ac¬ 
cording to plan and before you know 
it, the trio lands into trouble When it 
comes to charm. Scarier cannot compete 
with Gru. She seems like a one-dimen¬ 
sional character, devoid of any depth. 
She screams and whines and lacks the 
mediodical approach of Gru You co uld 
say; she is completely tbigettable as a 
character. But like the title of the movie 
suggests, this is a tale about the minions 
themselves and the rest of the characters 
that they come across are just there for 

die sake of it This is something, whkb 
could have been given more attention 
to, because in a movie that solely has 
the minions in it needs a layer of texture 
that could only be achieved with much 
colorful side characters. What worked 
for the “Despicable Me” movies was 
the relationship between Gru and foe 
daughters and since the minions served 
as sidekicks in those films, thdr charac¬ 
terization was balanced out with that of 

Since here they piay a primary role, the 
shorteomiiigs are prominent at best In 

ability to dislike the film, because at the 
center of it all lays true heart Of course 
there is a Me surprise after aO the ca¬ 
tastrophes Stuart, Bob and Kevin go 
through* but without blurting out any 
spoilers, thafs a story for another day 

“Minions” as a prequd might not serve 
die greatness on a neatly laid out plate 
like its predecessors, but it sure has the 
capacity to encapsulate the younger au¬ 
dience in its an hour and a half runtime 
There are moments where you will go 
bananas, but those bananas are Hdly ripe 
and edible enough to be appreciated for

Video Game Review: — 
Rise of the Tomb Raider 


Arts Editor 





l^ara Croft can’t catch a break 

In the 2013 reboot she found her then 
inexperienced sdf in a wildly dangerous 
situation by bdr^ shipwrecked on an 
isolated island with some unsavory fea¬ 
tures. A series of dose encounters, near 
death experiences and the toss of a fe w 
friends was a perilous time for her; With 
‘"Rise of the Tomb Rada;’ she more or 
less is in the same situation, but with a 
key difference. As opposed to dealing 
with an afraid version of the charac¬ 
ter, we find and more confidant and 
controlled Croft which could serve as 
an allegory for how Crystal Dynamics 
handled this particular project 

■"Rise* is placed one year after the everts 
of its predecessor; tatong on a more 
personal story than before. In order to 
dear her disgraced fathers name, Lara 
heads to the Siberian wilderness in 
hopes to find whafa known as The Lost 
Qty, which is said to hold the secret of 

immortality As a result she becomes 
in deadly' competition with the andent 
and mysterious Order of Trinity, who 
hope to use the secret for unknown, but 
presumably evil reasons. 

The plot points notwithstanding, !.ara 
is driven to do this almost for hersdf. 
By chipping away into finding out just 
what kind of person shes become, she 
tougjtt through an adventure in a harsh 
Siberian landscape, coming out the end 
as somebody reborn. The narrative rea¬ 
sonably balances between present-day 
Lara and moments of her past, piedi^ 
them together in hopes to niake a defin¬ 
itive version of the iconk character. With 
tlie twists and toms made throughout, 
paired with die game playk design, the 
development feels earned 

From a persona} standpoint, what was 
the biggest detraction from the reboot 
was its dnematkaBy charged direction. 
While its understandable some games 
have a particular style; its problematic 
when you cant tdl. where the scripted 
moments end and player inpift begins. 
Fortunately 'Rise* almost entirely nul¬ 
lifies this issue The first hour, which 
largely serves a tutorial, greatly retreads 
the steps of the original game. But once 
you’re familiarized with the mechanics 
and the story does its table setting, the 
game opens up to where player agency 
becomes its key componenL 

Environments remain open and secrets 
stay aplenty as you progress through the 
game in numerousways. It sticks dose to 

the blueprint of the reboot, where there 
are numerous collectables and a variety 
of optional tombs to explore within a 
series of expansive, but contained hubs. 
On top of a few new additions, each of 
these aspects is better fleshed out in this 
game. With survival bang a prevalent 
etemenf this time around, theres a more 
refined foundation far hunting and col¬ 
lecting resources. Hunting in particular 
plays a prominent role as animals are 
more dangerous and hide materials are 
a more essential resource, A fair amount 
of time will be diverted to these aspects 
as they allow for on the fly crafting of 
makeshift explosives and methodical 
approaches such as weapon and general 
inventory upgrades. 

One of the newer game play features 
is the ally system, where you encoun¬ 
ter some of the natives of the land who 
could use some of Laras services. The 
series of missions can range from de¬ 
stroying radio communications to de¬ 
stroying surveillance drones. Some of 
these missions admittedly carry a me- 
nial fed to them. But what hdps miti¬ 
gate the situation is in knowingwhat the 
reward wiD be prior to accepting the job 
fts nothing dose to an innovative fea¬ 
ture, but ftfc a useful addition, which has 
the potential to be further buik upon 

Theres a surprisingly hefty amount of 
content to contend with in the game to 
where you can easily be distracted from 
the main storyline, ft certainly hdps 
when a great chunk of said content is 
worthwhile. AIotoffoedcKumenteand 

relics you collect serve to reinforce the 
games narrative. They also aEow you to 
examine murals, subsequently leading 
to treasures and hidden survival caches, 
which aid you directly in your journey 
Every aspect within the gameplayworks

the players own sense of adventure and 
desire to explore. 'Optional challenge 
tombs also make a wekoming return, 
as each puzzle, despite them aft being 
physics based, are more thoughtfully 
designed and filled with reward Even 
the trips towards these tombs manage 
to form some thrilling pktfarmii^ se¬ 

With all of these aspects working wdl 
with each other, ft also illuminates the

necessary oomph compared to the bow 
The makeshift explosives make for an

the combat areas are designed to favour

News Editor 

Ibis past week the work! has seen mul¬ 
tiple devastation, including natural and 
manmade terror the most notahk be- 
mg the terrorist attack in Pam. from 
this we have seen tte mainstreaming of 
#PrayRrParis and #PmyFcs*IbeWcdd 

Growing up in a Christian household, 
going to a Christian church tor all of 
my life I learned early of what prayer 
meant to this group and who you an* 
praying to The practice Fve maintained 
throughout my life but my conceptual 
knowledge of the act has broadened 
quite immensely. 

When you’re young, you're very im¬ 
pressionable with most of your learning 
coming from your parents or whoever 
raises you. It doesn't matter if your Cau¬ 
casian, Asian, African, Muslim, Chris¬ 
tian or AihasL Ym grow up impressed 

Prayer itself means many diJferent 

In history, when people get together and 
do something chaise is made I would 
offer the idea that when people come 
together and pray something changes. 
No matter your cultural background 
make a difference 

Prayer causes calls to action ft always 

I’m not talking about changing your 
Faoebook prolife picture to have a nice 
flag filler in front of it Vm talking about 
going out and sending money to a fam¬ 
ily in need fm talking about bringing 
families and helping them out in our 
blessed country; Vm talking about actu¬ 
ally doing something. 

Unfortunately; some would say a lot of 
the time very few people actually do 
things Id help, especially when it comes 
to financial aid But I like to think that 
the prayer of anyone has a push, an igni¬ 
tion to get some people to start 

Not everyone can do something all the 
time but someone can move someone 

..some people pray as an outreach or 
an act of hope and best wishes. 

I really like die word hope in relation to 

prayer. Mo matter who or what vou are pravmg ta 
you’re hoping they are listening and you’re hoping 
its going to change something. 

things to many different people. From 
praying to a higher being, a dead per¬ 
son, nature itself or maybe just praying 
to pray - these things vary. 

As a Christian, I was taugjtf that you 
pray to God, or the Trinity, and they 
hear your prayers and answer acoxd- 
ii^|Jy My best friend told me, and I agree 
with this as wed that some people pray 

I really like the word hope in relation 
to prayer No matter who or what )W 
are praying to yodre hoping they are 
listening and you're hoping & gome 

to change something. This lakes away 
from the kfea of what you're praying to 
and opens it up to the idea that you're 
just praying. 

to do something anytime Thais the 
beautifril thing about prayer. Enough 
people united can make a difference 

The only thing I would like to see 
changed is when people pray. Start 
praying all the time, not just when di¬ 
saster strikes. Fray for you r family; your 
friends, the poor, the side, a stranger and 
your enemy. 

Pray for the litife diing^weflastbebig 
things and pray for change because we 
know the world needs it God knows 
die world needs it, Buddha knows the 
world needs it. Mother Naaire knows 

the world needs it 

Who cares who you’re praying to histo- 
ry shows prayer has power so Im going

Fair Bridges Gap Between 

Charities and Students

Students interested in vdunteering 
prospects may have found some oppor¬ 
tunities feirfy dose by. 

Numerous local charities set up shop 
and attended what was tile first Lancers 
Care Charity Day at the CAW Centre 
Nov, 18. With approximately 20 differ¬ 
ent charities present, it allowed them to 
draw in more student volunteers to akl 
towards their outreach and support ef¬ 
fort aU while giving studenLs the ability 
to build upon thdr portfolio. 

“Its a great partnership,'* said Sandra 
Rkao-Mugjia, the UWSAfc director 
of student events and progratnming. 
"I know a lot of my networking has al¬ 
ways started with charities, aixl on the 
ffip side of bang in business I know I 
look al that as an empfoyer, to see how

Among the charities present were Cys¬ 
tic Fibrosis Canada, Harmony in Ac¬ 
tion* the Heart and Stroke Foundation 
and die AIDS Committee of Windsor* 
to name a few. Versatility was the rea¬ 
soning behind the charities chosen, as 

it looks to pruvkk a broad scope of or¬ 
ganizations. But while charities are also 
seeking volunteers, they re also looking 
to promote and raise awareness within 
thdr respective areas

engaging in sex and maybe in drug use,” 
said Kimberly Icmfpod, a communi¬ 
ty ottfreach coordinator for the AIDS 
Omimittee ofWindsat '"We want them 
to engage m a safe way. Were not about 
judging people for thdr bdwiouis that 
they re engaging in* but mote about 
people being informed about the ded- 
aons they make.’’

work student who serves at the AIDS

On top of being more knowledgeable 
in regards to the disease, she finds the 
oqpertence of engaging within the com- 
munity to be rewarding. 

“It helped me a lot in gaining the pro- 

testttonatisni, and increasing my social 
work skills**' Golden said 

The event ran from 10 am to 3 pm 
Whik its uncommon for many char¬ 
ities to come together under the same 
roof and for the same reasons, the con¬ 
sensus seems to be if they get Just one 
volunteer within the timeframe, its one 
more than they had the day before

Theatre Review: 
The Little Mermaid 


Arts Editor 

It is an intellectual property which truly 
needs no introduction. In being among 
Disney's most cherished of classics* 
‘The link Mermaid” has worn out 
VHS tapes and discs across the con¬ 
tinent, entertaining past, present and 
perhaps even future gmcrafions, As a 
result, it has made its way onto several 
different formats with Broadway being 
one of them. We all know of Arid, Tri¬ 
ton, Ursula and Sebastian, and Windsor 
Light Music Theatre makes it sparkling 
dear they know of them as well 

As much as I dislike personal pronouns 
in reviews, it must be noted this is the 
first production IVe seen from Wind¬ 
sor light With this in mind, it is easily 
the most lavish and grandiose in all the 
right ways, Time was truly a wonekrtul 
atmosphere to it aD from the first mu¬ 

sk note to the curtain call The aquat¬ 
ic-based set design tied with the levd of 
detail put into the costuming and light¬ 
ing direction made for an immediately 
engaging experience. The production 
effortlessly boasted these strong qual¬ 
ities, leading to beautifully exuberant 
imagery, which was only to be further 
amplified by the creative and resource¬ 
ful special effects. 

The production moved at a brisk pace 
as the orchestra masterfully command¬ 
ed the show. In setting the tone and 
tempo, it allowed the actors on stage to 
perform to the utmost of their abilities. 
Amber Thibet, Kristen Slapas and 
Owen 'fhomas were the wonderful 
standouts as they' delved deep into the 
roles of Arid Ursula and Sebastian re¬ 

spectively. But the entire ensemble puts 
both feet forwaid as the cofleetrre effort 
was nothing short of outstanding 

While not without some minor techni¬ 
cal issues, every aspect of the production 
remains in a eonsistentiy top form. The 
project was a taD cider, which was ef¬ 
fectively met, as the production was the 
act of incredible symmetry between the 
musicians underneath and the actors 
on stage As it stands, it is one of the best 
musical performances you could ask for 
in the dry, and it is a tremendous exam¬ 
ple to highlight Windsor Light as the 
focal premier theatre company

Men’s Volleyball Earns Sweet 
Taste of Victory Over RMC 


Sports Editor 

The Lancer mens volleyball team has 
earned their first win of the OUA regu¬ 
lar season with a victory over RMC this 
past weekend at the St Denis Centre, 

Head coach James Gravdle and his 
young Lancm squad rebounded from 
a four-set loss in a htgfr-enagy match 
to the second-place Gads the day be¬ 
fore and came back with a strong effort, 
sweeping the RMC Paladins in straight 
sets with scores of 25-20,25-18 and 25- 

Ttsagood fedingT Gravdle said “I was 
happy we were able to play our game 
and stick to what we wanted to do and 
walkawaywith the win in three sets. We 
were winless before this match and were 
really motivated to get a wire 

In the weekends opening match against 
Queens Nov, 14, the Lancers played to 
thdr strength capitalized on service er¬ 

rors and useddfectivebioddngschemes 
to continue some big runs throughout a 
rather entertaining contest against one 
of the OUAs top teams. Despite a vali ant 
effort from Lancer rookie Brad Gyemi 
who finished the match with 19 kills, 
Queens height and power would prove 
to be tire difference as the visitors from 
Kingston )ust narrowly grabbed wins in 
the first, second and fourth set by identi¬ 
cal 25-21 scores. 

After dropping the second set the Lanc¬ 
ers came out with a strong defensive ef¬ 
fort and precision of offense to open up 
the third. Windsor put up seven Araight 
points with Gyemi and Shawn Ream 
me at the forefront of the attack Gyemi 
dominated at the net and Queenk would 
provide no answer as the I.ancers won 
the set in extra points 27-25. 

In the fourth the Lancers struggled with 
thdr serves, which allowed Queens to 
get bade into the game on multiple occa¬ 
sions. The Gads would go on to win the 
set and take the match 3-1 with scores of 

21-25,21 -25,27-25 and 21-25. 

The Lancers would liave little time to 
rest between matches as they moved on 
to the St Denis Centre the next after¬ 
noon to battle the Royal Military Col¬ 
lege Paladins Nov. 15. 

**I think regardless of who we played the 
day prior, we were going to come out 
hungry and ready to win,” Gravdle said. 
llMCisleg?tin^^they r area mudi-Un- 
proved team this year with quite a bit of 
talent, are really well coached and disci¬ 

Windsor would dominate the opening 
set and use a balanced offense from start 
to finish which allowed the young core 
of Lancers to enjoy the taste of victory 
for the first time in thdr careers. 

Lancers fifth year setter Blase Wasser 
said it fete good to get the teams first win 
after starting the year 0-5. 

“Getting the monkey off’ our backs 
feds good,* Wasser said. “We have a lot 
of young guys so getting thdr first win 

allows them to actually know 7 what it 
feds like to win a game at the University 

Wasser said the offense improved 

back to the roster after an injury in the 
opening match of the season. 

"Now that Brad is back hes able to find 
his rhythm and get some confidence 
backj" Wasser said "Bringing him back 
tacker and it spreads the floor a lot more 
and puts less pressure on the other guys. 
So its really good hes back." 

In the first set, Windsor came out swill¬ 
ing for the fences, racking up 11 total 
kills, earning a 25-20 win. In the second, 
Windsor gpt behind early but some 
momentum shifting kills from Gyemi 
and Resume brought the I.ancm back 
to life and back in the match at the tech¬ 
nical timeout. Windsor continued their 
strong and consistent offensive pfoy for 
the remaiiKler of the game en route to 
their first win of the season Resume; a

“We want to finish the semester strong^’ 
Gravdle said “Weve been in every 7 
match. Weve lost most sets by two to 
four points and now we have Gyemi 
back who makes a huge difference for 
us. Hes the top offensive player on our 
team and its big to have him back. We 
need to keep building and win as marry' 
matches as we can in the first half* 

Windsor condudes the first half of thdr 
regular season with a pair of matches at

blocks from Dean and Emily McQosky 
to put the pressure on the Paladins. 

Although the Lancers striked with

offensive and defensive combination 
proved to be enough as they secured

Shannon Dean and Emily Mcdoskey 
led the way offensively for Windsor, exe-

them to not be able to stop us in the 
middle,” Hodgson sakL Thir middles 
played very wdL Our outsides played 
well when they were counted on” 

The Lancers came out strong playing a 
solid defensive game to keep the Gaels 
guessing and quickly took a 2-0 set lead. 

“Defensively in the first two sets we dug 
up everything they threw at usT Hodg¬ 
son said. “But then they' started getting 
points and they started getting confi¬ 

A rotation error by Windsor would give 
the Gads momentum and the platform 
to rebound in the match, capturing the 
tighfiy<ontested third and fourth sets to

Hodgson blamed himself for almost a! - 
lowing Queens to come all theway back 
and defeat his team but was happy with 

their ability to battle through adversity 

“We had control of the matches and 
coaches made a mistake on a rotation 
so I take M responsibility for the third 
seC Hodgson said“That rattled all of us 
for a little while and it gave them some 
momentum. They got an easy point out 
of it, won that set and then they played 
really well in the fourth.” 

In the fifth. Shannon Dean served forsix 
straight points for the Lancers, bringing

Windsor head aoach Rocky Thompson 
said it wasn't the best hockey the Spit¬ 
fires have played tilis season but it was a 
stMement game ^inst a division foe in 
whxh they found a way to win and gen¬ 
erated keys goaJb when the opportunity 
presorted itsdf 

“We want to be considered a oontender 
this year” Thompson said. "We've got a 
little bit of a streak going right now and 
Wve had a tough schedule. We've been 
on the road an awful lot so we wanted

of hard work after winning a defensive

was lucky enough to put a pretty good 

move on Halverson and put it in, Its a

Its a division game so its a btg game no

A hot start to the regular season for 
Luchuk has seen him scone more goals

Barrette Scores Double-OT Winner 
In First Victory For Women’s Hockey 


Sports Editor 

The Lancer womens hockey team earned dieir 
first win of the season on with a 3-2 double over¬ 
time win over the York Lions at South Windsor 
Arena this past weekend 

Head coach Jim Hunter said the win was a long 
time coming for Windsors young team 

“They worked hard and they deserved iCIdimt- 
er said "York got a late on us to force overtime 
but we didn't get down on ourselves. We came 
back and fought hard whkh is a good sign. We 
stayed tight, battled through adversity and were 
fortunate enough to get the win kte.” 

Although the Lancers came out foil of energy it 
was the lions who got on die board first at 2:47 

rest of the first period was back and forth play 
where both goalkeepers were keeping the game 

late in the second period Jfflian JRops would be 
rewarded for her strong efforts when she tied 
the game up on a goalmouth scramble. The goal 
was scored at 1439 with the assist going to Hilary 
Hettwer and gave the Lancers confidence head- 
ed into the second intermission.

The Lancers then surged out and tooka2-I!cad 

earfy in the first on a goal from Kristyn Lawer- 

ence. The goa! put Wmdsor in fte driver seat as 

the lions tied it up ona goal from Raenna Kelly 
Lhe final six minutes would be M of excitement 
but neither teamwould score again in regulation, 
which sent the game into overtime. 

Windsor thought they had won die game in the 
opening overtime period but the goal was waved 
offdue to the lions net being dislodged prior to 
the puck crossing the line, much to the ire of the 
Lancer bench. Windsor would calm down and 
oontinu e to control die tevd of play throughout 
the frame and were rewarded for their discipline 
when York was assessed a penalty late in the first 
overtime which gave Windsor an extended pow 
er play for much of the second. 

The Lancers eventually took home the double 
overtime victory when Natalie Barrette fired the 
puck from a sharp angle and into the back of the 
net with just 032 second remaining in the frame 
Id avoid the shoot-out, giving the Lancers their 
first win of the season. 

Lancers goaitender Ingrid Sandven look home 
the win in net stopping 32 of 34 shots and earn- 
mg the praise ofher head coach. 

1 thought die was the difference^maka; a Hunt¬ 
er said "We had a good chat prior to die game 
and 1 said, At some point and time our goaiten¬ 
der is going to have to steal us a game; Its like a 
pitcher in baseball or a quarterback in footbal 
We needed our goalie to be our best player to* 
night and tonight Ingrid was our best player? 

Unfortunately for the Lancers, they would not 
have much time to edebrate their triumph as a 
datewith file Guelph Gryphons loomed the next 
afternoon. Despite a strong effort Windsor M 
behind 4-0 and eventually dropped a 7-0 deci¬ 
sion to the visiting Gryphons at South Windsor 
Arena Nov 14 

Although the Lancers came out hungry with a 

fest paced tempo, the Gryphora got on the board 
first when Kadi Shdl found the bade of file net at 

5:19 of the first period 

Hie second period was all Guelph as they scored 
three unanswered goals to build a four-goal lead 
Kelly Gibbons and Marde Landman opened the 
period with a pair of goals m the first two and a 
half minutes before Avert Nooren scored asbort- 
handed marker at 12:29 

The Lancers continued to put the pressure on in 
the third but had some trouble finding the bade 
of the net. Guelph added three more goals in the 
period to take the win 

“As much as we wanted to celebrate our first win, 
we had to get right back at it [against Guepi] 7 
Hunter said "Were a long way from where we 
want to be so one win csver a weekend is not 
good enough for us. We need to find ways to 
get points, especially at home We need to take 
advantage of our home games and see if we can 
catch up in the standings,” 

After file loss the Lancers now sit at 0-6-1-1 on 
the season and continue to remain in last place to 
the OUA standings but with plenty of opportu¬ 
nity to climb the ladder as file season progresses. 
The Gryphons improve to 7-2 on the year and

as Mitch Mamet; Lawson Crouse and 
Spencer W&soa 

'The guys played wdl from the start 
of the game until the end of the game, 
goalies included” Thompson sakL Tu- 
ehuk and DOadnto were our penalty 
Idlers but thdr line with Iordan Kyrou 
from Sarnia scored a goaL In all areas of 
the game that line was definitely a big 
positive farm” 

While DiGiacinto was named to Team

Grow On Windsor held its month end 
party at the Bourbon Tap and Grill as a 
final plan to raise money and celebrate 
a successful month for keeping cancer 
funds and research local* 

The group, based around Movernber, 
has raised over $ 150 jQQG this year and is 
keeping all the proceeds local* whereas 
general Movmiber events tend to send 

it elsewhere 

nity has been outstanding in the cam¬ 
paign and Windsor and Essex County 
has been more than supportive both 
financially and in spirit 

“hi general, I find most people in our 
area arevery giving individuals and they 
more than proved it with Grow Gn this 
yearf said Kassem 'When we asked if 
people would be interested in support¬ 
ing our cause of keeping the money 
local* it was without missing a beat that 
people said yes and that they would 
want to participate in it” 

Both individuals and corporations set 
any dollar amount to raise through¬ 
out the month and received pledges to 
reach the goaL Kassem said some of the 
individual group numbers went up to as 
much as $30,000.

“The reason a lot of people get involved, 
and I myself started the campaign, was 
finding out the money Windsor and 
Essex County raised didn’t stay in the 
area,” said Kassem 'One in eight men 

will be diagnosed with prostate cancer 
so why not keep local and support our 
men here.” 

Jim Fair, a cancer survivor found out 
three years ago he had prostate cancer 

10 days after retiring He said he was 
lucky to have it caught when he did

Art Gallery Hosts 
Personalized Artist Talk 


Arts Editor 

While artist conversations and ponds 
are nothing out of the ordinary, a recent 
event looks to shake up the structure 

A handful of local artists came together 
for what was the debut of IN Conver¬ 
sation atlhe Art Galley of Windsor's 
Rodzik gallery Nov. 29* With this events 
theme centered on storytelling, rough¬ 
ly a dozen people attended the panel 
where its intent was to create a natural 
dialogue between artist and audience. 

'All of these adiibitions are in a way 
related to storyteHtog* stories that are in¬ 
vested in objects, or a book,” said AGW 
contemporary art curator Srimoyee 

Some of the focal artists present woe 
musician Crissi Cochrane as wdl as 

novelist and poet Paul Vasey The event 
featured interactive question and an* 

swer periods, and each artist came with 

work ready to perform* with all of' it 
keepii^ to the theme of storytelling by 
discussing its origias and fundamentals. 

“I start with a character, always," Vasey 
sakL *1 don’t ihink about plot, I dorit 
think about structure^ I doht map it out 
because I find that kills the life of the 

story If youre mapping it out to tiiat 
degree, then die characters aren't telling 
you where the/re going, you're telling 
them where they're going." 

This is ihe first time foe event has been 
hdd, which was hosted by local au¬ 
thor Vanessa Shields. The event came 
as a way to utilize free space within the

University Helps Students 
with Research and Writing 


News Editor 

The University of Windsor is attempt¬ 
ing to make toe best of their students 
toroi^h sessions, which will teach them 
howto wrie and convey todr research* 

The Writing Support Desk has been 
hosting workshops in order to hdp 
students to piece together and develop 
the research they are putting together in 
tbeir studies. They hdp with the funda¬ 
mentals, structures and overall quality 

of the writing research and conveying 
of the paper, 

Jason Horn, an academic writing advi¬ 
sor, said whatever step students are at in 
toeir writing, they are there to help. 

“Whether they are developing an intro¬ 
duction or thesis, the structure of their 
essay or even Just todr grammar we are 
especially since toeyVe cut toe OAC out 
ofhigjt schools and theyhs not expected 
to do as much writing or research,” said 
Horn ‘A tot of people come into univer¬ 
sity under prepared in this aspect and 

we want to help them to get to toe level 
they should be at and beyond” 

The writing desk has one-on-one ser¬ 
vices available to students who come 
and ask for it aloi^side the workshops, 
Horn said toe one-on-one is good but 
if a lot of people are asking for hdp, i& 
harder to meet the needs of everyone 
and thats where the wotkshops come 

“We want to hefo as many students as 
possible with what they need and we 
find the workshops are very good for 
this,” said Horn “This one was specif¬ 

ically held in conjunction with LTW31 
Discover which is designed to hdp 
undergraduates get into conferences to 

Horn said UWill Discover will hdp 
bufid impressive resumes and provide 
opportunity to have a leg up in toe in¬ 
dustry they are chasing. 

The workshop held Nov, 24 was con¬ 
structed dirediy towards the UWiH Dis¬ 
cover opportunity but Horn said there 
are many other options including more 
bask and advanced woikshops. 

Bom said the three workshops they've 
held on todr own and toe in-dass ones 
theySfle had as well have hdped students 
immensely and they are seeing very 
positive outcomes. 

‘Tft important to have your structure 
and even your grammar honed because 
when you're even in arguments on so¬ 
cial media, people will scrutinize your 
grammar before they scrutinize toe ar¬ 
gument itsdC said Horn. 

More workshops will be available in toe 
future as weO as one-on-one lidp.

Recent Research Shows Ethno-Racial 

Immigrants Make Less Self-Employed 


News Editor 

A recent study done my Du Reza Na- 
khaie, professor in the department ofso- 
dofagy anthropology and mminotogy 
says new immigrants who are sdf-m- 
ployed make Jess money 

This artide, published in the Canadian 
Review of Soctotogyr states immigrants 
who seek self-employment almost al¬ 

ways earn less than those who apply for 
wage or salary jobs. 

However, another paper coauthored by 
Professor Frandne Schtosser and Dr 
Gerry Kerr stated “immigrant entre¬ 
preneurs are unrepresented in inter¬ 
national new ventures and have many 
characteristics known to fanffate suc¬ 
cess, including more founders* univer¬ 
sity degrees, intematfonal connections, 
and technical capability 

Nakhaids research said a lot of immi¬ 

grants are breed into to sdf-emptoy- 
ment because of fedora such as lan¬ 
guage barriers, customer disaimination 
and a lack of familiarity with business 
laws and odtuiBl values. 

He said many ethno-radal immigrants 
are attracted to ideas such as job-fkitibiL 
ity that come with sdf-empfoyment 

The coauthored papers by SchJosser 
and Kerr gives four reasons as to why 
this information does not represent the 
majority of sdfemployed immigrants, 

induding immigrant entrepreneurs 
have more intematfonal oonnectfons 
than native ones, the international 
group leverages thdr human resourc¬ 
es to develop new ventures, a lot of the 
group is over-represented with having 
certain characteristics in relation to uni¬ 
versity education, depth of international 
experience, devetoping tace-to>face in- 
ternatkmal conned 
pability and non-significant INV char¬ 
acteristics which developed technology 
meditated international connections. 

They state these immigrait entrepre¬ 
neur ventures are supported and do 
not represent file idea tfa^ they earn less 
outside of the whtie collar brackets.

“Light and Reflection” Illuminates Gallery 
Space With Frozen Moments in Time 


Lance Contributor 

Elliott Erwitt once said “photography 
is an art of observation. It has link to do 
with the tfain^ you see and everything 
to do with the way you see them' 1 

The Ajtspeak Gallery played host to this 
quote, displaying bod photographer 
Marisa Spadaforafe woifc from Nov, 22 
through Nov 27. with a dosing mo¬ 
tion held Nov 28. It was a space tilled 
with photographs, which captured 
different moments in time; varying in 
shape, size and depiction depending on 
the subjects in the photographs, 

“I love photographing people, and land¬ 
scapes and just documenting moments 
and peoples lives, especially for friends 
and famfljt' saidSpadafora. 

Interesting angles and competitions of 
foe photographs set them apart from 
each other and exhibited isolated stories 
within the fames far foe viewer to con¬ 

‘This show is about people pausing,” 
expressed Spadafbra “Sometimes when 
you step out in the rooming you are in 

such a msh to get to where you have to 
go foal you donY notice foe beauty of foe 
light, or your reflection in a window, or 
in a puddle, so I hope that it pauses peo¬ 
ple to stop and say you know what, not 
only can I do this, not only can I capture 
this moment but give some pause on 
everyday liter 

Looking dosdy at some of her pictures, 
it can immediately be noticed how the 
artist plays with reflection aid colors to 
symbolize and give form to an abstract¬ 
ed meaning. One of her photographs, 
“Echo of Lighi” captured the reflection 
of boats on the water and the ripples 
blended the colors of the reflection, thus 
crcatirg an intangible meaning alto¬ 

T hope it evokes emotion, memories in 
themselves for foe viewer" said Spadafo- 
ra, Tfl am asked I will tell them my sto¬ 
ry and where it comes from but if not I 
would rather you derive from it whalev- 
er emotion it evokes in you., that&why 
I mixed some of the primary colors wkh 
softer images with some sepia. I dorit 
photograph the person who is going to 
be viewing it, but I do like to watch the 
reaction when I share ft.”

The rXttvmown Mission brought a new 
exhibit into his chambers, slrowcasing a 
number of pieces last week, after a num¬ 
ber of requests. 

T like nature, which is what my piec¬ 
es consig of here, and they have been 
mostly done in acrylic,” said Jure Blake, 
ore of the artists at the event 4 All these 
works are from ray imagination and I 
likeusingalot of colors in my paintings,” 

Local artists got togetlier to display- their 
work at the first annual art show “Mis¬

Mission Nov, 25. The event included 
artwork that was extremely free while 

also comprised of ail kinds of different 
genres and mix media. 

“The gyescs at the mission had been 
asking for an art program to showcase 

their talents in different ways,” said Jen- 

nipher Gee, the Community Health 
Worker and organizer of the event “So 
through community collaboration and 
soda! media, the Windsor Essex Com¬

a local funder; a local artist who was 
willing to volunteer her time and began

Film Review - Everest 


Lance Contributor 

Directed by Baltasar Komdkur (Con¬ 
traband, 2 Guns), “Everest* is based on 
true events of' the 1996 Mount Ever¬ 
est disaster A talented cast consisting 
of Jake GyUenhaaL fason Clarke, Josh 
Brolin, Kdra Knighlley Emily Watson, 
Michael Kelly, John Hawkes and so on 
grace the film. A tale of survival, tragedy, 
heroism and adventure, the film relives 
the accounts of the 1996 tragedy with vi¬ 
sual spectade that reminds you that the 
jury of nature is supreme ai best 

It is May 1996 and many expeditions are 
set out to climb the tallest peak of Ever¬ 

est T\vo ofthe teams are led by Rob Hall 
(Jason Clarke) and Scott Fischer Qake 
GyOenaal). Halls team consists of people 
like Beck Weathers (Josh Bidin), Doug 
Hanson (John Hawkes), Yasuko Nam- 
ba (Naoko Mori) and journalist Jon 
Krakauer (Michael Kelly). M of foese 
people have an affinity towards moun¬ 
taineering and for some its the last move 
to add another feather in their hat to test 
their dimbing skills by fedng the treach¬ 
erous dimb to the summit of Evened 

The film starts off' slow, with the peo¬ 
ple parting way's from tiiar loved ones 
and setting off on a perilous journey. 
The slow pace of the first half is delib¬ 
erate and works in favor for the film 
because tliere are so many people and 

the director wants you to spend time 
with them before the inevitable trage¬ 
dy In tact, the buildup accentuates the 
imminent arrival of Everest's wrath. The 
cinematography is nothing less than a 
visual spectade as foe camera sweeps 
the topography of foe environment of 
the famous mountain. The harsh envi¬ 
ronment sways violently as the teams 
ascend slowly towards the peak and you 
almost fed that Everest itself is a charac¬ 
ter, large and impending and not Just a 
background landscape. You get a feeling 
of nenrousness and vertigo as foe group 
passes over deep crevices and struggles 
through blinding winds. 

Although Emily Watson, who plays 
base camp manager Helen Wilton, ex¬ 

hibits a range of emotions brilliantly as 
she hears foe team caught amidst trage¬ 
dy and Knight! ey, who play’s Halts wife 
in sorrow on the receiving end, these 
moments fed forced and you get the im¬ 
pression that Kormakur makes it a little 
more obvious than it should be~ 

But when you look at the overall nar¬ 
rative foe director manages to give the 
audience a complete package and the 

Everest lias its highs and lows, but its not 
as much a matter of lows as much it is 
highs. The film takes you on a believable 
journey to familiar environs dial exist 
on earth, while feeling alienated be¬ 
cause of the harsh environment they are 
engulfed in. It expects you to clamber 
along with foe people who once existed 
and manages to avoid slippery slopes

Thro^^aseriesdlloats and tropes, the 
winter season has ushered in, as are the 
holidays alongside it 

The Downtown Windsor Business 
Improvement Association (DWBIA) 
presented the fourth annual Wintertest 
on the afternoon ofNov 28. The down¬ 
town event had numerous people pair¬ 
ing their chairs dose to the Ouellette 
Avenue road as the parade, featuring 
prominent local fluxes and businesses, 
went under tiill swing for the better part 
of an hour 

“ft gets you in the spirit for ChristmasT 
said Anne Mafgaret-Lewsaw, who at¬ 
tended to see ha - daughter who was 
part of the Windsor Dance experience 
parade group. 'Good community, its a 
great day. You’re promoting different or¬ 
ganizations in the community?' 

On top of the festive atmosphere how¬ 
ever, the Downtown Mission was also 
present, making roasted chestnuts. The 
proceeds tarn the day went towards 
furthering their support for those less 
fortunate during the holidays. But by 
tying it all in with the Winferfest parade, 
die mission is also hoping to promote 
their services as toe temperature contin¬ 

ues to drop 

“This is toe time of giving, its a time 
where people think about their fellow 
man, ifs also the time of year where 
people are cold,” said mission director 
of development Fiona Coughlin. 'They 
realize toe impact of being homeless or 
without shelter or food more so at this 
time of year?’ 

The parade began on the owner of 
Ouellette and Giles Boulevard at 3 pm, 
eventuau/ turning at Pitt Street With 
about 50 units being part of the parade, 
toe float supported everyone from dty 
councilors to marching bands, Iconk 
charaders such as Mkkey Mouse and 
Elmo appealed to families even as they 

watched the mtlaiahfe snowman or gin¬ 

gerbread man pass by Of oourse, it saved 
the best for last as Santa Claus was the fi¬ 

nal ride of toe parade. But ultimately toe 
event made for an atmosphere where an 
entire community came together. 

'This time of year you just want to get 
into that spirife said Peter Polafe a chef 
at the University of Windsor who was 
at the parade with his wife and two 

kids, “You meet people, you see people, 
! think its toe whole experience of the 
holidays. Yotire not celebrating a type of 
religion, you’re just celebrating.” 



Film Screening Shines Hopeful 
Light on Climate Change

With several environnienlal films plac¬ 
ing a hanowing focal point on dimate 
change, a recent film looks to pair itwith 
a dash of optimism. 

i4 &s good to get young people involved 
because i& their planet that willbegping

said Windsor on Watch and Canadian 
Council member Randy Emerson. 

On Nov 23, the university s Centre for 
Er^jneering Innovation played host to 
the screening of “This Charges Every¬ 
thing,” a ctoaimentary based on a book 
of the same name which was written 
by Naomi Klein. Both die film and the 
bode touch upon how resources arc 
being wasted on a mass scale, whkh is 
directly linked to dimare change But 
it also shows how some nations have 
managed to provide deaner energy us¬ 
ing successful alternative methods 

Both the Cbundl of Canadians and 
Windsor on Watch put on the screen¬ 
ing. Prior to the film, several pieces of 
information were available on environ¬ 
mental hazards and disasters, as well as 
how people can go about making a dif¬ 
ference Both organizations bdieve the 
key is to curb consumer centric activi¬ 
ties* whkh could then lead to a mass re¬ 
duction in the use of natu^

going to have a recycled product," Erm 
arson said “Everything should be in re¬ 
spect to not grabbing another resource 
to build it again ^bu just carft keep that 
up, dimate change or not" 

Nearly 100 people fiom varying age 
groups attended the screening, both of 
which ultimately hope to use this film 
as a dialogue for past, present and foture 
generaLoiis to aid towards die fight in 
order for die planet to reman sustam- 
able. They also bdieve current genera¬ 
tion students play apivutal role towards 
the effort 

"We have countries that are further ad¬ 
vanced than we are and already mak¬ 
ing a diange, getting off oil and getting 
into alternative energies, and thdr 
economies are thriving because of iC 
said Douglas Hayes, diairman of the

students who are interested in environ¬

to engage more students in the dimate

A Journey Inside Vivaldi’s Four Seasons 

The Windsor Symphony Orchestra collaborated with violinist Rachel Barton Pine for a performance of 
VivaldVs The Four Seasons at the Capitol Theatre Nov. 29, 

[Photo by ft Hani Yassinej 


Arts Editor 

There* a hint of irony in playing this 
particular program as we go through a 
seasonal change. 

In entering the second portion of thrir 
Masterworife series, the Windsor Sym¬ 
phony Orchestra performed Antonio 
Vivaldis "The Bout Seasons' 1 Nov; 28 
and 29. Both shows were subfeted to 
packed audiences as they experienced 
the flavors of spring, summer, autumn 
and winter through notes and compo¬ 

The orchestra collaborated with ac¬ 
claimed violinist Rachel Barton Pine, 
who was partly responsible for leading 
the charge in bringing the program to 
life For every movement within each 
season represented Pine showcased 
tremendous skill as die contrasted tones 
and tempos seamlessly, She slimes ever 
brightly as both a sob musician and 
orchestra companion as the program 
embraced the timed works ofVivaldi 

'fhe first chunk encompassed the ma¬ 
jority of foe concert as it wasted little 

time delving into "The Four Seasons.” 
Each seasons nuances were successful¬ 
ly channeled through the instrumental 
work of the orchestra 

ft began with the joyful spring move¬ 
ment where ftish fields and singing birds 
can be seen through sound represented 
through delightfully toned notes, only to 
transition into a thunderous approach 
through rapid successions on the vi¬ 
olin. Summer was met with lethargy 
to underscore the dreadful beat of the 
!6th century Autumn stayed upbeat 
throughout as it revolved around har¬ 
vesting festivities and winter was a mix 
of teeth-dmttenng temperatures and 
warming presence around a fireplace, 
which was marked by the pulling of vi¬ 
olin strings. 

Per usual, fine symphony performed 
valiantly enough to provide a strong 
auditory experience. But it is the com¬ 
mitment and energy within Fines violin 
playing whkh made it a truly compel¬ 
ling listen. As the final note was played 
and Vivaldis seasonal loop was dosed, 
the standing ovation from die audience 
ended up being more than warranted 

The program conducted with Beetho- 
verik Symphony na 6 in F major. 


Theatre Review — Scapino 

Brian Haight ami David Httdyma star in University Players’ production of‘Scapino' at Essex Hall Theatre 

from Nt iv- 27 to Dec, 6* 

JPfrofo by// Doug MacLeLlani 


Arts Editor 

Short but sweet would be the simplest 
way to describe “Scapino,’ the sixties-set 
Naples comedy which serves as a mid¬ 
point for the University Players’ current 
season. The production runs for less 
than two hours, but each minute finds 
rtsdf bursting with energy making for 
a wonderfully charming and organic 

TTie title comes from its central charac¬ 
ter Scapino is a lovable scoundrel He& 
a mischievous figure light-heartedly so, 
but odd!)’ enough hes looked upon as 
a beacon of guidance for a few charac¬ 
ters in the story Specifically its charac¬ 
ters Ottavio and Leandro who lode for 
Scapinok help, as they try to sway their 
controlling lathers into not anai^ing a 
marriage for them He accepts the job, 
but goes about it in his own, manipula¬ 

From a personal standpoint among 
the better nuances of the play was how 
Scapino occasionailykeeps the audience 
in the loop, breaking file fourth wail in 
the process* Its a great example of how 
the entirety of the production is all in the 
good name of fun. From the musical 
interludes sung in kalian, to the hilari¬ 

ous banter between characters getting 
under each others skin Each actor on 
stage absorbs file flavours of the writing 
and uses ii to their advantage The slap¬ 
stick humor remains consistent in its 
tastefulness and effective use is made of 
the two-fioor set as scenes flow with the 
utmost ease. 

ft would be criminal however, to talk 
about this production and not mention 
Brian Haights performance as the tit¬ 
ular character* To say he shines would 
be too much of an understatement On 
paper, Scapino is somewhat of a das¬ 
tardly chapter, but Haigfrt makes him 
a lovable scamp, putting in more than 
enough charm in the performance, 
which makes him a joy to watch The 
supporting cast put in fine work as wdl 
especially David Hudyma who plays 
Geronte But Haight ultimately com¬ 
mands the show in making it as enjoy¬ 
able as it is* 

The production relatively shorter 
length comes off as beneficial as the 
comedy remains briskly paced from 
banning to end, with many laughs in 
between Plenty of character is injected 
within this play to where ifo easy to rec¬ 
ommend to just about anyone So while 
it may finish foster, chances are it will 
stick with you longer 

‘Sapnb runs until Dec 6*

The Windsor Lancer mem vdfeyball 
team ended the first half of their OUA 
regular season on a high note, coming 
back to defeat the Ryerson Rams in a 
five-set thriller at the St Denis Centre 
this past weekend 

The five-set match win over Ryerson 
came one night after dropping a four- 
set match to the Toronto Varsity Biues 
# home The weekend split g fees the 
young Lancers a 2-8 record after a com¬ 
petitive showing against the Rams and 
Blues, who are the third and fifth place 
teams in the OUA conference 

With the first half of the regular season 
now dosed, Lancers head coach Janies 
Gravelie wants his team to use their last 
game of 2015 as an example for the re¬ 
mainder of the season 

"We have to continue to get better' 
Gravdle said “We weren't good enough 
in the first half and our record reflects 
that if we play like we did [against Ry¬ 
azan] then were going to have a lot of 
success in the second half 

The Lancers started ihrir weekend off 

against the Blues Nov 27. The 

Blues took control early on in the first set 
and came out with a 25-21 wire Wind¬ 
sor bounced back in the second set to 
win 25-22 but unfortunately would not 
earn another set in the match. The Var¬ 
sity Blues opened the fourth set 4-0 and 
led the Lancers by eight points at one 
point Toronto would continue to dom¬ 
inate and took the last two sets, winning 
them both by scores of 25-15 and 25-18, 

Josh Edwards led the Lancers with 11 
kills but registered only one dig in the 
contest Fifth year senior Shawn Resu¬ 
me dripped in dgjht kilt 

Next up were the Ryerson Rams With 
an impressive season thus the Rams 
looked to take control early on, but the 
Lancers stormed the floor to grab a 20- 
14 lead in the first set Brad Gyemi led 
the Lancers offense with five kills and 
three digs in a 25-21 first set wire The 
Rams came out into toe second set wish 
a different mindset, as they grabbed an 
early 11-7 lead that eventually turned 
into a 25-14 second set wire 

Tied H the Lancers and Rams battled 
in the third to obtain a lead going into 
the fourth The Lancers led 8-4 until the 
Rams called timeout and rallied to tk 
the set at 10 points each. The set stayed 
even until a kill by Rams Mare Reardon 
and an ill-timed Windsor attack error 
helped the Rams win the set 27-25. 

Once again the Lancers found them- 
selves in the same 2-1 hde that had al¬ 
lowed the Varsity Blues to defeat them 
the previous night 

The fourth set started with the Rams 
leading 7-4 The score was 13-11 after 

a Josh Edwards kill and would go back 
and forth until the setwas tied at 18 after 

an attack error by Ryersoos Robert Wo- 

jdk. The Lancers kept the set dose and 
took a lead on a kill fan John Moate 
assisted by setter Blase Wasser* which 
gave the Lancers a fourth set win and 

The Rams started off the fifth set by 
scoring three consecutive points but toe 
Lancers came back to tie the game and 
eventually came out on top with a 15-11 
victory and earning their second won 

match of the season. 

Lanceri Brad Gyemi registered a total of 
14 kills and 7 digs while Josh Edwards 
had another great performance with 14 
kills as well Gyemi said he recognized 
his previous mistakes a^unst theVarsity 
Blues and did his best to prevent those 
same mistakes. 

"My main focus this game was to avoid 

errors,” said Gyemi "The match before 
1 had a lot of errors. If 1 was in a bad 
situation I would just find my rhythm. 
P!^ an easy ball a tip or something to 
try and get my rhythm back so I can get 
a big swing at it” 

The Lancers will look to pick if) on the 
high note which they left off on when 
they face the Waterloo Warriors at the 

St Denis Centre Jan. 15. 

"Although we have quite a long break 
now we have to build off of this win and 
use it for our trainii^; for the month,”

'Against Laurier we weathered the 
storm and I thought we outplayed them 
and deserved to win.” 

Laurier opened the scoring eariy in the 
first period but the Lanoer defense were 
impenetrable for the remainder of the

sor Lancers without thinking of Dennis 

“Dennis is an iconic figure here at foe 
University ofWindsor and in the histo¬ 
ry of Lancer athletics*” Havey said “He 
has been a mod d of dass, humility and 
professkmalism his entire career ... he 

has been someone who has always put 
the team first He has mentored gener¬ 
ations of student-athletes, coaches and 
colleagues alike We haw all been made 
better because of his Inifoence and lead¬ 

A native of Tilisonburg, OoL Fairall is

cross country crowns. 

Fairaffs often told his athletes to work 
hard and to give everything you have for 
the team every time you stepped onto 
the fidd of competition. His fundamen¬ 
tal stance that the team was bigger tlian 
foe individual gave thousands of ath¬ 
letes the bdief they could pull out fotir 
best from within themselves. 

“It is important In sport to work to¬ 
gether to achieve a common goal sim¬ 
ilar to what the student-athletes will do 
upon graduation in the working world,” 
Fairall said 'Our program attempts to 
create an environment through dedi¬ 
cation to training and an outstanding 
competition sdieduk to alow athletes 

to develop to foe highest levd possible” 

In addition to his University of Wind¬ 
sor coaching duties, Fairall has exten¬ 
sive international coaching experience

Mixed Emotions Voiced About Recreation 

Centre At Town Hall Meeting 


Sports Editor 

The students of the University ofWind- 
sor have been voting on the implemen¬ 
tation of a new student fee to fund the 
capital of die Lancer Studert Recreation 
Centre project 

Over the past three years, membm of 
all three student groins on campus - the 
UWSA, GSS and OPUS - participated 
in the development of the facility plans 
and the financial modd from the very 
beginnii^ and were said to have been 
part of every decision made related to 
this project The dements iff the fedhty 
and the priorities determined all came 
out of student focus groups that were 

hdd on campus with a number of dif¬ 
ferent areas and groups. 

The financial modd of the LSRC fee 
was presented and explained in further 
detail at a town hall meeting hosted by 
UWSA CRO April Adams in the CAW 
commons Nov, 27. Over 25 questions 
wre asked by those in attendance and 
answered by a pand including Lancers 
intramural coordmator fosh Leeman 
a$ well as UWindsor students Erin Ga¬ 
briel, Austin Roth, Meaghan Fdet and 
HaiTnanjot Singh* 

"A project of' this magnitude and this 
size absolutely deserves attention re 
gaidkss of whkh side you lay orC Lee- 
man explained "But now is the time to 
do it This is the best value for your dol¬ 
lar yew are going to g£” 

Singh said UWindsor students needed 
to embrace the opportunity as a major 
in the progression of the university and 
its student body as they move forward 
in an attempt to be on par with the best 
schools in Canada, 

T think ife time for the students to think 
as a community;' Singh ‘Having this 
fedly in a place like Windsor b defi¬ 
nitely goii^ tohdp us build a b^err and 
brighter community together whkh is 
more about human value than anything 

Brigham Bartd is a member of the 
group "Drop Fees Now Windsor 1 ; 
whkh campaigned in support of the 
‘Vote No' group. Bartol quiddy pointed 
out die group is not against the LSRC 
building or anything wfthin the project 

itself’ just funding modd 

"We dorit bdieve students should be 
fitting the biB for thi$T Bartol said "We 

have taken a look at how capital projects 
are funded and we think it b entirely fea¬ 
sible for the University to fund die proj¬ 
ect through other means - as they have

Bartd said the group main focus of

to do - vote and have a say in the ftitore

“As students w need to rmiind our¬

The Windsor Spitfires have lost four out 
of their past five games* with their most 
recent setback coming at the hands of 
the London Knights at the WFCU On 
lie this past weekend 

Windsor held a 3-2 lead over the 
Knights headed into the thftd period 
thanks to a pair of goals fom Mikhail 
Sergaduev. The Knightsansweredwitha 
tiiree-goal third period to take a 5-3 vic¬ 
tory in font of an announced crowd of 
5, 153 spectators, Knights captain Chris- 
dan Dvorak scored twice, including the 
game winner and assisted on two others 
as the Knights won for the third time in 
two and a half days. 

Spitfires head coach Rocky Thompson 
said Windsor has done a lot of good 
things fills season but when you are a 
young team, you are bound to make 
mistakes. However, it is important 
his team learn fom them as the tram 
progresses throughout file grind of the 
QHL season. 

"We had a good opportunity to beat a 
team thalfc a realty good hockey dubT 
Thompson said “We had a 3-2 lead but 
we took too many penalties. We killed 
the first three penalties against one of the 
most dynamic power plays in the league 
and could have had some momentum 
coming off of those but in the third peri¬ 
od we were let downT 

The first two goals of the game came 13 
seconds apart, just over four minutes 
in as Hayden MdCod of the Spitfires 
tipped a hard point she* from Mikhail 
Seig^chev past Tyler Parsons for a 1-G 
lead. The Knights won die ensuring 
faceofF and Aaron Berisha got to the 
Windsor blue line and fired a qukk 
wrist shot at the net Spitfire goalfo, Gar¬ 
ret Hugfison kicked out the rebound 
right to Londons Kole Sherwood and 
he made no mistake, firing the puck up 
high to score and tie the game 

Windsor went ahead 2-1 as ca^rtain 
Patrick Sanvkkfe shot from the blue line 
found its way through arms, leg$ and 
sticks and past Parsons. 

The Spitfires nearly went ahead 3-1 
while on the penalty kfll after Vktor 
Metek skate lost an edge at centre ice. 
Bradley Latour picked up the puck at 
M stride and flew in cm a goal but was 
stopped by Parsons. 

Both teams would combine a pair 
of quick goals shortly after First, the 
Knights took advantage of a Windsor 
turnover while they were on the power 
play. London carried into the Spitfires 
end and the puck wait fom Milch 
Mamer to Christian Dvorak, to J. j. Pic- 
dnidi as he scored his 10th power play 
goal of the year to tie the game 2-Z 

Just 36 seconds after, the puck found 
Sergufiiev at the top of the right drde 
and he stepped into the skit and fired 
a wrist shot into the Knight net to put 
Windsor bade in font 3-2 after40 min¬ 
utes of pby-

the third period with a power play and 
found the bade of the net just 27 seconds 
into the frame. Mitch Mamet attended 
his point streak to 16 games by firing 
a puck from the ri^it drde and was 
tipped in by Tkachuk to tie the game 

Mamer then set up Dvorak while he cut 
through centre area, he then split the de¬ 
fense and decked his way past Hughson 
to score his 21st of the season and 

give the Knights a 4-3 lead. With time 
winding down, Mamer Ifited a pass to 
Dvorak and he scored into an empty 
net Dvorak now holds second place in 
the QHL scoring with 49 points, while 
line mates Tkadiuk and Mamer sit in 
third and fourth place with 48 and 47 
points respectively. 

"We had opportunities to score and we 
could have blocked some shots but we 
didn’t,” Thompson said "When you 
come down to games that are tight like 
this and against good teams ft always 
boils down to those types of sacrifices. 1 '

It was on die Dec. 12 weekend where 
the Capitol Theatre was home to a 
highly unique spin on a classic Christ¬ 
mas story and Tchaikovsky suite 'The

when the pmductkinwasfedthfufiyper'

The decision to put on this produc¬ 

tion was backed by publk .support as 
WDX members strutted their stuff to 
a variety of hip-hop songs, both dasssc 
and ament The performances from 
the ensemble were tied with explosive 
enegy, folly embracing die genre But 
the production also managed to subdy 
indude other forms of dance and retain- 

the Christmas spirit “The Nutcracker” is 
known for. 


The production acted as actual-purpose 
between provkhi^ audimoes a fresh 
perspective and introducing the danc¬ 
ers to new forms. Among the sob danc¬ 
ers was 18-year old Jessica Chanon, 

who is an UWindsor hist year in soda! 
work and disabilities. Having been with 
WDX for seven years, also serving as a 
choreographer* this show marked her 
second sok> dance performance as she 
played an Arabian dancer The perfor¬ 
mance posed as a challenge for her as it 
was a style she was unfamiliar with, yet ft 

provided worthwhile experience, 

Tm usually a contemporary dancer, 
and I had only done one sob before be¬ 
sides this Arabian one, so it helped me 
gain stage presence where ife only me

Concluding SoCA Concert 
Features Unlikely Pairing 


Arts Editor 

It was described as a dynamic, ‘heauty 
and the beast” duo when ft came to the 
instrumental pairing, 

Serving as the final concert of die se¬ 
mester from the School of Creative 
Arts* "Simple Gifts of Christmas was 
welcomed by roughly 80 people at As¬ 
sumption Halls Heritage Room on the 
afternoon of Dec 13, The concert was 
sponsored by the Royal Canadian Col¬ 
lege of Organists* where on one end the 
show was yet another way to get people 
into the spirit of the festivities. Yet the 
real feature happened to be the uncom¬ 
mon pairing of the piano and organ; 
instruments with similar designs* yet 

“One is a wry bright kind of sound, the 
other one is more sustained, and the two 
of them mix very weB that wsjf said or¬

David Palmer and Gregory Butler were 
the two to fill the role of organist and

This is on top of touring across North 
America and beyond, as they’ve per¬

achieve the compliments to each other,” 
Butler said 

The majority of the program had songs

Videogame Review - The Order 1886 


Lance Contributor 




‘The Order 1886,” supposed prized 
exclusive for the PlayStation console 
turned out to be a fake gem concealed 
deveriy within the confines of Arthuri¬ 
an legends and a steam punk Victorian 
London, all blended together to make 

it seem like an interesting plot with 
substance. Like the year in the name 
suggests, the year is 1886 and you play 
as Galahad one of the members of the 
Knights of the Round Table. The air is 
filled with dismay and gfoom as the 
centuries old order is trying to face the 
tension prevailing on the streets of Lon¬ 
don with the people rebelling against 
the aristocracy. The streets are being 
terrorized by werewolves who are also 
called Lyeans and it is the job of Gala- 
had and his group of Knights to be the 
poster heroes of the adventure and ward 
off such adversities and make the streets 

The concept, revolving around the leg¬ 
end of King Arthurs Knights and were¬ 
wolves within Victorian London* may 

seem like an intriguing idea with uncan¬ 
ny potential, but somehow the theory is 
not fully realized when it is translated 
into the game Dull characters, inco¬ 
herent chapters and a fragmented plot 
plague the narration. All these elements 
seem subtle because the visuals of the 
game are fantastic and thats as for as 
the Order goes, Throughout your pro¬ 
gression you come across objects which 
you have to lode over and it gives an 
immediate impression of how hard the 
developers want the players to admire 
the graphics. No doubt it is the best 
looking videogame to date, but visuals 
alone cannot make a game appealing. 
The mundane plot and the long mo¬ 
ments of walking through claustropho¬ 
bic pathways take up half the time of the 
game and you fed that game is forcing 

you to hold Its hand throughout the 
adventure with constant tutorials till the 
end, which is unheard of in videogames 

The gameplay doesrit get any better to 
save the Older from its downfall as it 
brings in nothing new to the table. A 
simplistic third person shooter* with 
only a handful of interesting weapons 
like the thermite rifle, which shoots a 
cloud of gas and then it can be inciner¬ 
ated with a concentrated flare But you 
only get to use such weapons in a few se¬ 
quences, which is such a shame because 
the weapons are so eniovahle to use. 

★ i 

Also, all the plot points that are estab¬ 
lished in the game are left unresolved, 
as the ending is abrupt and completely 

‘The Order 1886“ is a game that teases 
you with what it could have been had It 
used the Arthurian legends ingredient 
in interesting ways. Victorian era was a 
time of ingenuity of the industrial age, 
a significant kap for mankind like the 
Renaissance. Ironically the game, de¬ 
spite the setting, fails to capture those 
moments and feJb behind rather than 
develop a cohesive narrative filled with 
excitement and immersion.

Theatre Review - A St. Clair Christmas 



Arts Editor 

It is December, so its safe to say the bob 
sdsys are on the horizon and the festive 
atmosphere arrives at dockwork. Nu¬ 
merous Christmas produettons have 
made their way onto the local stags over 
the past few weeks. But none may be 
as grandiose as the annualized produc¬ 
tion put on by St Ckir College Music 
Theatre and Entertainment Technology 

M A St Gair Christmas" is seff^splaiiato- 
ry The ChryslerTheatre has played host 
to the musical in die form ofa growing 
tradition, gamering a laige crowd with¬ 

out fail and within reason. The produc¬ 
tion is an aB-enccanpassing celebration 
of the festivities, from its literal bells and 
whistles to its harmonious nature. No 
dtHjbt theii^ a fafr amo^ 
around the edges, but the music and 
dance numbers as well as the charming 
flavors of the aestiietics simply make it a 
performance difficult to dislike 

Any iconic Christmas song you can 
think of makes its way into the show, 
both for better and worse. You have 
your While Christmas just as you have 
your Silent NighL Santa Claus comes 
to town the same way hes stock in the 
chimney At a near relentless rate, the 
production moves from one number to 

another, going from the roaring twen¬ 
ties to the 1970s in the process. As there 
are virtually no diaracteis, plotting or 
narrative to consider, theres roughly 25 
different Christmas pieces for the au¬ 
dience to sink into, with most of them 
subjected to strongly committed perfor¬ 
mances from the ensembles as tlieyre 
physically put through their paces. 

Occasionally it could serve to be count¬ 
er-productive as the amount of moving 
around in certain songs can detract 
from the volume of the singing But 
upon making sharp transitions towards 
skwer; more moving numbers, it bnngp 
out the best of the ensemHek vocal abil¬ 

It moves at a rapid rate, though some¬ 
times a bit too rapid as the orchestra 
tinder the stag? take little breaks of their 
own, putting the notes into the next 
song just seconds after the previous one 
The musicians underneath perform 
valiantly and skillfully but with how 
its structured it feds like a consump¬ 
tion of a meal without actually tasting 
eL This can also reflect on the stage as 
there have been symmetrical stumbles 
mainly during the grand dances. Its 
haid to mind too much however when 

its offset by a palette of visual delights, 
filled with wonderfully lavish costumes, 
a welt-crafted set and strong, confident 
lighting direction. 

On top of it being a cdebration of die 
seasoa “A St Clair Christinas'’ is also a 
way for the schools Music Theatre stu¬ 
dents to expose and build upon their 
talents. Theres a kvd of showmanship 
to admire from how each member of 
the ensemble puts in the effort Perhaps 
with some extra tinkering, their poten¬ 
tial wiO be frilly realized in due time.

Adventures in Retail: How Customers 
are Restoring My Faith in Humanity 


Lance Contributor 

Ah yes, the agen^Jd lamert of a retail 
worker slaving away during the holi¬ 
days. YouVe probably heard it a hun¬ 
dred times through countless Paeebook 
posts and in-person conversations^ peo¬ 
ple can be less than land and considerate 
to retail wcakmduruigtheholkfays. If 
you haverit been seasonal help yet, you 
can probahiy picture how challenging 
the season can be without standing in a 
stare. However, when you’re eventually 
in those sensible sneakers, Christmas 
takes on a whole other atmosphere Tri- 
day nights at the mall during Midnight 
Madness sales-sometimes, h can even 
turn you into a devils advocate. 

I work for an international dothing 
company; whkh holds a spot at Dev¬ 

onshire Ma! I started in October, I sus¬ 
pect Fm seasonal help but they haverit 
outright said so to me during the hftft^ 
process or my days there since. 

As I kind of expected, things really 
didn’t start getting linaip-to-the-back- 
of-the-store-crazy T until last weekend, 
when I was Messed with working the 
cash re0ste£ (I promise thafs not sar¬ 
casm, as being a cashier is my favorite 
task at work) I must say, in all hones¬ 
ty I think I was having a betto- time at 
work than people standing in tine with 
theft purchases. I actually felt really sor- 
ry for each and every one of them AD 
our customers looked exhausted just 
totally beat down, and unhappy to 
boot Everyone been there-trying to 
shop the sales for hours because times 
are tough* but we still want to give our 
loved ones die best we can get It was 

land ofa kkk to the shin to see everyone 
tike this during a season where musk, 
sigps, commercials, everythin is teBing 
us i&a cheerful, happy-go-fodytimeof 
year Iwasexpectii^thewi^untilniy 
customers got to my register 

What I found was, in fact despite what 
I saw on theft feces, people were still 
doing ftsdr best to keep theft spirits up 
when dealing with me. Almost every 
single person I cashed out did three very 
distinct things: muled at me, greeted 
me, and left my register wishing me a 
good night or a Meny Christmas. 

Now, this being my tint year working 
retail at Christmas, I was kind of taken 

Here I was expecting rudeness, impa¬ 
tience, exasperation, or otherwise un¬ 
pleasant ftteadfofis with my custom- 

m-most especially from the ones who 
looked particularly miserable while 
standing in line-ami aD I received wot 
polite, wdl-wishing ojstomers. 

Admittedly, rilstoedraonmyccwodc- 
ers transactions with customers while I 
was scanning items, I heard customers 
bidding them a Mary Christmas, too, 
hearing laughter, or hearing them ask¬ 
ing my coworkers how they were and if 
they had been there a long time that day 

Honestly? The worst customers have 
done to me so fer this season is mess 
up my store. I can foi^ve them far 
that Everyones in a rush this time of 
year, trying to get presents before theft 
kid comes home from gymnastics, or 
theft wife comes home from her yoga 
dass, and they still have to get home 
and figure out dinner after theyre done 
hiding presents. I get it Sometimes itsa 

Ifttte frustrating to have to fcM the same 
table of shills three times in a shift, but 
Fve come to terms with the feet that its 
going to happen, there are b^ger thing? 
going on than someone rumpling up a 
shirt instead erf folding it is not the end 
of my world. Besides, Fm getting paid to 
do it—why complain? 

AB in all, I have to say, I would totally 
work retail again during the holiday sea- 
sore Fm sure some days (and custom¬ 
ers moods) are worse than others, and 
maybe Fve just been incredibly lucky in 
my interactions with customers. How¬ 
ever, from what Fve essperieneed so fer, 
working retail during the holidays has 
not destroyed my feith in humanity and 
Wlndsorites, but restored it, one cus¬ 
tomer at a time. 

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Exercise, diets, pills, therapy - basically 
every comer has been delved into in 
terms of toss management The new¬ 
est fed is very easily accessible and can 
do a lot of good for your mind during 
hard lima, like exams. 

Coloring books are something long for¬ 
gotten for many after the age of six, frs 
something you do in between the lines 
asayoungchfld and grow out of last and 

never really look back at 

Lately, however, many stores have been 
selling adult adoring books* to help 
calm the body and de-stress* Studies 
have said its the rhythmic repetition of 
filling in similar spaces that hdps calms 
the nerves so a lot of the books being 
sold are of tiled-like plaid or mandak 

Blank page drawing and coloring for 
the average person is a lot less stress re¬ 
lieving and, according to an older study 
published over a decade ago and it can 

even induce more toss. 

Nine out of the 20 top selling books 
on Amazoacom currently are of these 
toss-relieving books and over 13.5 
million have sold between the two most 
popular ones* A lot of new ones are be- 
ir^ published and soon everyone will be 
able to find one appealing to them, from 
sport culture and nerd culture to home 
widens and nature. 

Coloring, however, is not for everyone. 
1 gave it a try met the past week and 
found it tossed me out more than it did 

help due to my lack of steady-handed¬ 
ness. The non-pafient beware, this may 
nm be the thing for you. 

Some other options available to students 
exist at the university itself 

For some it may be joining a dub at 
foe university. One can never have too 
many friends and people who have sim¬ 
ilar interests may be able to help you find 
ways to let out she built up toss. 

For others, it may be spoils and exerdse. 
Sometimes* de-stressing is as simple as 

exiting yourself, working up a sweat 
and having fm doing what you enjoy. 

There are other options as well includ¬ 
ing listening or playing music watching 
a comedy or simply going for a walk* 

If coloring does sound like foe thing for 
you, the University of Windsors Book¬ 
store I’las them available as well as online 
or at other local bookstores* 

Remember to stay untossed this holi¬ 
day season and try to find a way to take 
it easy. 


Let’s Save 
O j ibway 


News Editor 

OJibway Park has been receiving a lot 
of attention latdy including a petition 
signed by 22,000 people Id keep it as it 
is and stay away from the big box devel¬ 
opment^ has already been ^proved 

The park itsdf not only holds a lot of 
unique and endangered ecosystems in 
Canada, its a name everyone Horn the 
area knows and has visited fts a big 
spot tor tourism and it also attracts and 
maintains a lot of photographers, bird ¬ 
watchers and nature lovers inside and 
outside of the county. 

With the recent decision by Windsor 
council to let the Coco Group move on 
to the next step of development, it has 
left a lot of people with many questions. 

Mot only wifl Windsor be losing part 
of a beautiful park, it will be adding 

something it doesn't need Canada, 
and the world as a whole, is losing a 
lot of its beauty to industmlization and 
for many, this is where the line will be 
drawn m Windsor and Essex Qjunty 

A local group has stood up and man¬ 
aged to gather signatures in spite of 
councils decisions. Although, foe/ve 
had no avail with it to date, & a fight 
they should be proud of as they contin¬ 
ue to ptherevery^ 
side With almost 22,000 signatures in a 
little over a week, it goes to show there 
are people who care and council should 
look at these people when making Itli- 
ture decisions regarding Ojitavay, 

A group dedicated to the preservation 
of the prairie, Save OjJbway* hdd a pasta 
dinner and silent auction to raise money 
to help defend their beloved land 

The group headed by local Nancy 
Rancheshan, is leading the fight and 

tidans to seewhat heads they can tom 

Todo Ms they are going tohave to keep 
on fighting, because up to now; nothing 
has changed 

The park itself frames a lot erf species 
that can only be found in Ojibway The 
ecosystem, a very beautiful one, b also 
one many hold a place in thdr heart for. 
With the construction of the big box, 
many negative things can happen, only 
starting with the disturbance and de¬ 
struction of the park itself 

With the mix of kxals getting involved, 

ting out, a powerful wave of people are 
getting ready to make a trig strike and 
get as many groups involved as possible. 
Something that needs to be done to save 
the park aaeryone knows and loves in 
the area. 




Students were able to steal some deals at the University of Windsor's 
Bookstore to help save money on whatever they may need for exams 
or in preparation of next semester. 

The Student Appreciation Day, held inside of the Bookstore t allowed 
students to scratch cards to save money on any purchases made. 
With the mix of Christmas coming and second semester incoming 
the Bookstore did what they could to help out and show their appre - 


Students could pick up any last minute Hems they needed for with a

Film Review - The Walk 


Lance Contributor 

‘The Walk' is based on the real life sto¬ 
ry of Phiflipe Petit, a french ropewalker 
who challenged his courage to pursue 
his dream of walking between the Twin 
Towers on a rope in 1974 The film 
stars Joseph Gordon- Levitt in the main 
role along with Sr Ben Kii^sley (Papa 
Rudy) and Charlotte le Bon (Annie), 
Directed by Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest 
GumpT“Back to the Future"), the film is 
a visual spectade. 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt pbys die role 
convircmgly, although his French ac¬ 

cent can be a bit Jarring sometimes. 
Phiflf>e Petit is a man of urraanny pas- 
sfoa a passfcm to tope walk not fora liv¬ 
ing, but to ravish his own appetite to gfve 
the best performance he can provide for 
his own conscience above anythir^dse. 
On his journey he comes across his cir¬ 
cus mentor Papa Rudy (Kingsley), from 
whom he gathers valuable lessons about 
walking the tope. Along M way he Ms 
in love with Anne, who makes a living 
by playing musk on the streets of Paris. 
The insatiable hunger to walk between 
the towers leads Phiflipe and Anne to 
Mew^bik Gty and from thereon starts 

the planning between Phiflipe and his 
accomplices to make his dream possi¬ 

Rom the Parisian streets to the icon¬ 
ic booting TWin Towers undergo^ 
oxistruction, the sweeping shots of 
Zemedoss artistic style accentuate the 
ambience of the film and add to the 
narration, Retifs iconic performance in 
New Yotk is faithfully portrayed for the 
aiulcrid screen an^ 
own right 

The tension is imminent the moment 
you anticipate a sense of vertigo as Petit 
crosses the gap between die skyscrapers 

and you realize that the artist madness 
is in fed his detamination and his pen- 
chant as an artist to seek out his dream. 
& leaves a lasting impression on you and 
makes you question your own motiva¬ 
tions in lifc 

“The WfeEkT is a movie about pursuing 
dreams, fighting your way through 
obstacles to achieve them and the mo¬ 
mentous achievement of living than to 

ed to die limit The beauty of ft all is the 
feet that it devates the notion of how for 
we can go to cross foe finish line. It is a 
love letter to the Twin Towers, a roman¬ 
ticized visual treat that commenrarates 
foe buildings with bdievabte detai "ibu 
could say the buildings are a character 
too because of their intimkbtir^ edifice 
touching the clouds; douds upon which 
Phiflipe Petit wants to dance upon to

Play Review - Peter Pan (To) 


Lance Contributor 

Peter Pan is an iconic character that has 
remained “ageless’ in popular culture 
for quite some time His adventures 
have been showcased in animated films* 
TV shows and movies over the years. 

This time around, the boy who never 
gets dd took the audience on yet anoth¬ 
er adventure a4 the Kordazone Theatre 
Dec It Named "Peter Pan (To T as 
Tiger lily (Carla Gyemi) exuberantly 
elaborates upon when she introduced 

the characters erf the story the play was 
a pantomime parody of the JM Barrie 

Drawing similarities from the origfonal 
the play adds its own twists within the 
plot by referring to people in today's 
popular culture, which enhances the 
humor to the already established dassic 
Notable performances cast members 
Alexandra Hristoff(Peter Pan To), Mar¬ 
tin OuUette (Hook/Mr Darling), Tank 
(John SheOhom) and Samantha Ed¬ 
wards (Shmee) need to be mentioned, 
as they keep the audience entertained 

toira^foautthe play with their energy. 

Most importantly, the show had lots of 
spots for audience participation, which 
made the ambiance and experience 
of die play that much more lively The 
subtle expressions of actors made sit¬ 
uations exquisitely comedk and there 
wasrft a sense of boredom as a result of 
it Whether it be Tank frolicking around 
toe set or Hook devising an evil plot to 
capture Pm with his feBow pirates in 
frustration, it was a laugh riot 

Going in to toe theater, I assumed the 
play would be a faithful representation 

ofthe original story but it came asa sur¬ 
prise how develiy the cast enacted the 
pb^ with thar own take on it by giving 
funny snide remarks about Justin Bkber 
and introducing a band which called it¬ 
self No Direction!* Tie actors managed 
to sustain the comedic dement through 
die end with toe occasional song break 
adding a flavor to the play. 

therein lies its strength. If was in a way 
a edebntfion of the adventures of Peter 
Pan in the form of a parody and never 
once was there a moment where toe 
experience fdt dragged or forced upon 
the audience. It ended with a confron¬

ily aisJumi/abk' Lo anyone: you am 
essential oik spices in your cupboard 
or even tea to give your ereaikms a de 
Ikious fragrance. My favorites to make 
are sugar scrubs; fi jr a small mason jar 
size, you need granulated sugar, then 
some kind of carrier oil like coconut 
cd shea butter; or even dive oil (You 
can find more exotic oils like apricot 
and grape seed oil whkh have differ 
era benefits for skin* at phoes like GNC 
and Nutrition House) Then, just toss 
in the dungs you want to nuke it smell 
good, mix, and yourednnd ffyouwat* 
to keep to the seasonal theme, 1 would 
suggest recipes for gmgetaad, pepper-

you can even just write a simple mono 
rv or message on a plain ornament and 
I promise you, thereedver will tove it It 
youre especially crafty; you can even 
hand-sew some piushte ornaments

ceived one of these, and ilk exactly what 
it sounds like pretty up a jar and fill tt

thing packed Shoot you could even 
print off some photos and plaster them

The two-time defending National Bas¬ 
ketball League of Canada champions 
have narrowed down their roster to 13 
players ahead of the teams exhibition 
game on the toad against the London 
Lightning this upcoming weekend. 

Windsor Express vice president of bas¬ 
ketball operations Bill Jones announced 
he cut four of the 17 players who were 
invited to the teams training camp last 
week The camp opened with orienta¬ 
tion Dec 9 and ccmduded with an ex¬ 
hibition game against the Lima Express 
of the Midwest Professional Basketball 
Association at tbe St Oair SportsFtex 

Jones said the toughest part of his job 
is to cut players when they go out and 
compete for jobs only to be turned away 

“'Ihose players went out there and 
played and Em proud of them,” Jones 
said "But when you're trying to get a 
team together you h

Raheem Singleton and Tony Bennett 
headline the roster, along with some 
new faces on the squad featuring Mau¬ 
rice Bolden* John Hawkins, Zach Val- 
1km DerekThompson and Shane Ross, 

Filling out two of the four Canadian 
roster spots are former Windsor Lanc¬ 
ers Josh Col lins and Jahmal McQueen, 
who were both rookies on Windsors 
diampkmship run last seasoa Unfor¬ 
tunately for Windsor native Rotimi 
Osuntola Jr* the Express art him after 
he failed to make the dress roster against 

Rounding out the roster is former Mis¬ 
sissauga Raptors 905 guard Shaquille 
Keith, who Windsor fans saw as a vis¬ 
iting player during the first ever NT.L 
Canada and NBA D-League exhibition 
game at the WFCU Centre Nov. 9. 

Coming into his fourth season with the 

team, the veteran forward Commons 
said be was seated to lead a group with 
so much young talent selected to the 

“My sole purpose of this year is to pro¬ 
vide leadership and pass on what I have 
learned,” Commons said “But that part 
is going to be easy’ because I love this 

In their lone chance to shine for die 
Express finnt office and coaching 
staff, Windsors training camp players 
showed the hometown fans what they 
were capable of contributing to a third 
consecutive league championship. The 
Express got out to sizable leads after 
the first and second quarters and paced 
themselves to a 108-82 victory over the 
Ohio-based team, who only dressed 
eight players but featured the games 

high scorer with Jody HilFs 26-point ef¬ 

Express fans saw a balanced scoring 
effort from the home team throughout 
the contest but it was the versatile Bold¬ 
en who led the way forWtndsor with 24 
points. The highly touted rookie Keith 
showed fans glimpses of what kind of 
an impact he can be in his first season 
of professional basketball with 14 points 
and three defensive rebounds white 
shooting six for 10 from the floor 

Commons said Bolden and Keith are 
perfect fits to put into place ofWindsors 
championship formula. 

“The game Gods are only’ going to be 
good to players for so long but those two 
have the game Gods on tbdr side right 
now," Commons said Tm oedted for 
them. Mo is a great addition and by be¬ 

ing here we are going to let him dowhat 
he does best and Shaq is super talented 
and athletic I have nothii^ but praise 
for them.” 

Keith, 22, will no doubt provide the 
team with a highly skilled Canadian 
player after the departure ofpoint guard 
Gary Gibson and anafl forward Kevin 
Loisdle in the off-season Playing in the 
NBL Canada will give Keith a foil 40 
regular season games to develop and 
Boorish in this league as he sports a very 
strong and balanced game coming out 
of Kilgore Coll ege in east Texas. 

*Thin^ didnt work out theway I want¬ 
ed to - hut when youre playing in die 
best league in the world you team a toC 
Keith said "Now I have an opportunity 
here with the Windsor Express, 1 came 
here to get better and develop my game 

The Brampton native said his time with 
the Raptors 905 raised his compete level

The Windsor Lancets vdleybafl reams 
are in different positions in their respec¬ 
tive divisions but the goal remains die 

No matter whal the situation* womera 
head coach Lucas Hod^on and meek 
bench boss James Gmdfe always look 
toward the overall goal of the proglam 
each season - advance to theOUA play¬ 
offs and compete 

The strategy worked wdl for the merk 
squad last year, which earned the sev¬ 
enth playoff seed late in the season. The 
term,“anything can haj^en in the play¬ 
offs 1 ’ was in full effect as the Lancers went 
on to upset the second-ranked Ryareon 
Rams in the quarter finals and advance 
to the OUA Final Four for the first time 
in over a decade. Windsor hdd a 2-0 
lead over die York lions in the bronze 
medal match but gave tip the final three 
sets, missing out on an OUA medal and 
a berth in the OS champfonships. 

While this season has a different list of 
challenges, a 2-8 start is very similar to 
Windsor s position a year ago This time 
there is a bevy of highly talented young 
players to lead the charge in the future. 

First year outside hitter Brad Gyemi 
is a player the Lancer men wfflrdyon 
to put up big swings in the second half 

each set, coming bade to win the third 
27-25 to extend the match against one 
of the OU/fe top teams. Although they 
dropped the match Windsor rolled 
over thdr momentum to the next day 
when they would get thdr first win of 
the season over the RMC Paladins in 
convincing foshioa 

The mem team gave themselves some 
hope for the second half when they 
battled hard and defeated the Rams in 
a five-set thriller at the St Denis Centre 
Nov 28 and push thdr record to 2-8 at 
the exam and holiday break 

“We have to continue to get better^ 
Gravelle said ‘We wererit good enough 
in the first half and our record reflects 

that If we play like we did [against Ry 

erson] then were going to have a tot of 
access in the second half’ 

The task ahead is tough for Gravdfefc 
group but this is nothk^ they havmt 
been through before. Wflh 10 matches 
remaining in the season, don't be sur- 
prised to the scrappy Lancers nearly sptit 
thdr schedule and finish the campaign 
with a 6-14 or 7-13 record Unfortu¬ 
nately this may not be good enough for 
a playoff berth, but crazier things have 
happened in the world of OUA volley¬ 

The womens volleyball team has en¬ 
joyed a strong start to their OUA cam¬ 
paign fed by a consistent offense and a 

Wltidsor Lancers libero Emily Durand passes up dur ing a match against the Western Mustangs at the St. 

Denis Centre Nov. 28. Ihe Lancer women's volleyball team is currently 5-4 at the holiday break and sit in 

third place in the OUA West division.

the first portion of their schedule and 
Windsor^ offense struggled because of 
it Fifih-year seniors Josh Edwards and 
Shawn Resume filled the void might¬ 
ily for Lancers and provided some 
highlight-reel folk in the process* butt 
Windsor stumbled toward an 0-4 start 

Gyemi returned from injury gainst the 
Queejnk Gads Nov. 14 and his injection 
into tlie offense was highly noticeable. 
Windsor matched the Gaels firepower 
in the match and was competitive in 

sound defense while working their way 
to a S4 record Head coach Hodgson 
and his team wifl use their consistent 
offense and stout defensive play to lead 
than to victories once the second half of 
the season begins Jan. 15. 

Fifth-year setter Lauren Stirling has 
been key to the consistency of thdr of¬ 
fense* distributing different sets to keep 
opposing defenses on edge Middle hit¬ 
ters Shannon Dean and Emily McGo- 
skey have flourished so for this season 
and are a pair that every team in file 

try and come out of those matches with 
a victory. 

The womens playoff seeding is slightly 
different then the menk* as four teams 
from both the East and West confer¬ 
ences wifl advance to the big dance. 
Currently in third place in the West 
behind the McMaster Marauders and 
Western Mustangs, the lady Lancers 
hope the second half of the season will 
yidd improved results agairetihcOUAs 
top squads. 

erf Hodgson said “By healthier I mean 
physically and mentally ready for the 
second half A tot of these gjris wererit 
expeetii^ this tough of a go its going to 
be something thatwe wotkonf 

The month of January wifl be especially 
important as they have rematch op¬ 
portunities against McMasta and the 
Gudpb Gryphons* the only two teams 
to beat them besides Western. The 
Lancers have the capabilities to knock 
off the OUA powo^ but will need good 

Should Windsor split tiiose match-ups 
and survive any upsets in the second 
half of the year, the lady Lancers will no 
doubt be in playoff contention in file 
OUA with a record hovering around 
13-7 or 14-6. Once they get to that point* 
it will require a relentless effort to elimi¬ 
nate their hopes of a tong playoff run. 

The first challenge for both teams when 
they return wifl be the Waterloo War¬ 
riors* who will visit the Sl Denis Centre 
Jan. 15.

Earlier this month, the CIS unveiled its 
roster for the series between Canadian 
university mem hockey all-stars and 
Team Canadas world junior prospects 
and the Lancer program was pleased 
to have Bradford selected to represent 
Windsor at the event

Over die weekend Bradford battled 
against high-round NHL draft jacks -

genera! managers and coaches tried to 
measure up the CIS alLstais against the 
next wave of NHL talent to see which 
among them was also ready to hit the 
pro ranks.

Local power lifting gym Empire Musde

inar this past weekend to bring aware¬ 
ness to its newly formed program and 
the positive impact the sportand fitness

bers of die Windsor community. 

Ibgether with veteran boxing coach 
and mamger Henri “Ram Bam” Guen- 
ette, Empire Musde owner Andrew 
Hedges transformed the extra space of 
his power lifting gym to host taxing 
programs and seminars available to the 
community and local fighters. From 2 
pm-4 pm Dec 12 Guenette trailed 
and taught fundamental boxing tech¬ 
niques such as basic punches, footwork, 
pad work, bag drifts and conditioning to

With the new boxing program put in 
f^ace three months ^ Hedges saw the 
free promotional seminar as a great idea 
to bring awareness to the versatility of 
the power lifting gym As for the sport 
of boxii^ Hedges hopes people get an 
understanding of its importance. 

"1 hope people take away from this 
event an understanding of what the 
sport of boxing is really all about,” said 
Hedges, Ttk true of any sport that you 

get some misconceptions when you just 
watch a sport on TV ife a very different 
understanding you take away from it 
when you ve actually been able to par¬ 
ticipate in itT 

Empire Musde was founded in Feb¬ 
ruary 2015 and Hedges intends for the 
gym to be a home for athletes to train 
with equipment and benefit from an 
atmosphere necessary to train for a 
championship- level performance while 
Guennette wants to use the nearly 
founded program to develop young 
taxers and athletes throughout the 

“Were getting a lot of young kids said 
Guennette. ‘tame adults come in just to

Guennette is a highly experienced box¬

and 15 fosses, including two Canadian 
Championship victories. He is a regis¬

Movie Review - TED 2 


Lance Contributor 

“Ted 2 W is one of fix>se sequels that sole¬ 
ly exist because they just want to for no 
rhyme or reason As a fcifow-up to the 
2012 movie ‘TED,” the sequd brings 
bade the foul-mouthed, pot-smoking 
bear Ted {Seth MacFarfane) and his 
friend John (Mark Wahlbeig), 

This time around, Ted and hh girL 
friend Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) want 

to adopt a child but the government 
will not give the couple the privilege to 
do so because it doesn't consider Ted 
a human being. Ted and John get the 
help of Samantha (Amanda Seyfned), a 
lawyer who could be thdr only hope to 
fight for their case. With die story rely¬ 
ing completely on Ted’s \ailgar comedy 
complete with a fot of marijuana jokes, 
the scenes Just dorit propel the story for- 
w'areL It feds disjointed and MacFarfane 
doesrit bring anything new. like the first 

film, it is more or less the same. 

With a sequd, you expect a narration 
that gets evolved from an established 
plot and weaves a cohesive and organic 
storytdling. TED 2” makes the blunder 
of not doing so and chums outa tale that 
only adds to its library new and more 
uncouth jokes to entertain the audience. 

The barrage of jokes vomited out of the 
fod-mouthed bear gets old pretty fast to 
the point your brain cannot cope with 
the fiknk plot and becomes numb in 

the process. In the first film a handful 
of laughs could be shared, but unfortu- 
natriythai is not the case with TED 2” 
It fads like the movie tries too hard to 
make people laugh and therein lies its 

Lade of good humor and an interesting 
ofot makes TED T a stale adventure 

that is not worth anyones time and pa¬ 
tience. Ted is gettii^ old and is burst¬ 
ing at the seams. He surely needs some 
repairs if he decides to make another 
comeback and hopefully that should 
not happen and no* the cuteness of the 
furry bear wont work its diarm to make 
things any better for TfcD 2T

Despite the laid back atirrosphere the

The two day competition saw four meet

the team and other event groups? said 
Smith." I took more rest than usual after

Smith broke her own meet record that 
she set last year in the 3,000 meters

up the next day, breaking a 23-year old 
record in the womens 1,500 meter set

“The records were a surprise," said 
Smith T actually was hoping fd run 
maybe a bit quicker in the 3,000but was 
pretty exdted about the 1500 though

been my strength so it was nice to get a 
strong effort” 

On the mem side, Brandon Dobson

which surpassed the previous meet re¬ 
cord set in 2002 by Lance Montipiy of

Rachad Wolfe set a new meet record in

happens to be a Windsor-trained mixed 

martial artist with aspirations of a career 
in the Ultimate Fighting Champion¬ 

Field has been training in boxing and 

mixed martial arts for the better part of 

two ysirs and in the days leading up to 
her amateur MMA debut at the Future 

Combat Stars event at Fogular Furianin 
Windsor, she said was exdted and ready 
for her opportunity.

“This sport has changed my life - ev¬

'When I took bade and see pictures I

While sparring al the Maximum 
Training Centre in Windsor, Fidd was 
approached by trainer Manud Alfaro 
and he asked her if slid! be interested in 
training to become a boxer and mixed 
martial artist 

“Manny is the heart and soul of this 
whole operation, I was training at MTC 
just doing it for tun with my dad and he 
noticed I had power behind my punch¬ 
es,” Fidd said "When he asked me if I 

was interested in fighting and I said 
okay thatd be cool - but I didn't know 
what 1 was signing up for.*. But its been 
worth every penny and minute Fve put

Fidd said the hardest part of the tran¬ 
sition to combat sports was the initial 
commitment she needed to make every 
day and admitted Alfaro suspended her 
along the way 

“Its either you are all in or you are out I 
decided to jump in with both feet,” Fidd 
said cant dedde oite dby Fm going

Lancers Basketball Teams To Be 
Tested In Remaining Schedule 


Sports Editor 

The Windsor Lancm basketball pro¬ 
gram wait through a first half of the 
year unseen in quite some time 

Wlule both the womens and 
mens teams have competitive rosters, 
they have fallen to the Western Mus¬ 
tang eariy in the regular season and 
most recently fell to the Ottawa Gee 
Gees and Carietoo Ravens to dose 
out their pre-exam and holiday break 

Dont get it twisted while both squads sit 
at 4-3, they are not records to stick your 

This is simply a sign of how truly com- 

thmg womens head coach Chantal 
VaBee has seen coming. 

After the graduation of Korissa WO- 

tiams, Joc^yn Lamcque - who both 
won five OS champtonshxps - as weft 
as Kjistine Latonde* VaBee recruited 
heavily and saw the Lancers go through 
significant changes in the off-season. 
Seven first year players wftl do their best 
to mix with the Lancers veterans in an 
effort to build up another roster; whkh 
could capture another womens basket¬ 
ball national title. 

VaBee was recently interviewed at a To¬ 
ronto Raptors game by Sportsnets Mi- 
chad Grainge and said the league has 
gotten better each season 

*Tfs realty chaBengirg we have to com¬ 
pete against better and better basketball 
players andcoadiesdoagreatfob across 
the countryf VaBee said "We're strug¬ 
gling but were going to do our best to 
chaBenge at the end and try to get our 
sixth diampfonship, if possible." 

Wrapped around their three losses was 
a huge effort against the third-ranked 
Ryeson Rams* when Windsor came 
bade from multiple double-digit deficits 
and pulled away for the 95-79 victory 

Members of the Windsor Lancer womens basketball listen to instructions from head coach Chantal Vallee during a timeout against the Western 
Mustangs at St Denis Centre Nov , 11, 2015. Vallee and the five-time defending C/5 champion Lancers are 4-3 at the holiday break and have 13 

games remaining in their schedule*

Andrea Kiss went off for 29 points and 
17 rebounds in that game and Valfee 
wiB need those kinds of efforts to get 
bade to the OS diampsonship tourna¬ 
ment before they try thdr luck at a sixth 
consacutiw national title. 

Forwards Cheyanne Roger and Emily 
Prevost wiB need to solidify the interi¬ 
or on offense and defense, Windsors 
guard play ofCaitlynn Langmuir* * Cady 
Steer and Kayfee Anagnostopcxilos wiB 
be crucial to establish offensive balance 
the rest of the way 

Easier said than done, but these women 
have the skill, grit and deamination 
along with a fine-tuned game prepara¬ 
tion to get file fob done, ft wouldnt be 
a surprise to see VaBee squad to nm the 
table over the next 13 games and find 
themselves in a good position to com¬ 
pete fora provincial and national cham¬ 

Merfe interim head coach Ryan Steer 
knew ec&ctty what he was getting into 
when he took over for Chris Oliver 
when the l atter took sabbatical for the 
year and his primarily yrxifii-indiioed 
team has fered weH during the first sec¬ 
tion of file regular season. The mem 
team bounced back from a loss on 
home court to Western Nm II and 
bounced back to sweep the Ryerson 
Rams and Toronto Varsity Blues the 
next week 

Akx CampbeB has been the scor¬ 
ing leader for the team but consistent 
secondary scoring has been an issue. 
Freshman Isiah Osborne has pit up 
good numbers for a player his age but 
Windsor wiB need a bigger input on a 
more consistent basis to make a push 
when the playoffs begin in late February; 

The secondary scoria load wiB not 
tall solely on Osborne however, as fel¬ 

low rookies Mkah Kinibd and Randy 
Oriafchi have stepped up for the Lanc¬ 
ers when the first unit has needed rest 
OriaMii rejpstered a double-double 
against file Rams while IGrubd has 
knocked down some big shots when 
the team has needed them 

Tfe nice to see our first years arerit 
scared to fight backT Steer said, 'Tfe go- 
ing to be up and down all season when 
we arc playing many first year players, 
They need to kam to dose out ^mes 
when we have teams on the ropes and 
put them awayT 

Windsor *rift be challenged right out 
of the gate when next semester begins, 
A road trip up to SL Catharines for a 
date with the Brock Badgers wiB yield 
a tough n^atchup for both squads as the 
Badgers are much improved from a sea¬

The women Badgers are currently 5-1 
division whik the men are in the exact 
same scenario wiffi a 5-1 record In the 
most recent CIS Top 10 poll tte wom¬ 
en are ranked seventh while the men are 
tabbed as fourth-best in the nation - a 
place Steer's squad would like to bump 
them off of 

Neither Windsor squ^is are induded 
in the CIS Top 10 at this point of file 
year, whkh is a rare sight to see since 
they have been regulars during the past 
decade Not to be taken as a slight, tiffs 
is another opportunity for the Lancers 
basketball program to prove to them¬ 
selves - and to the rest of the country - 
that no matter what year or what type of 
recruiting class comes to, no game is too 
big for them. 

Us time for our Windsor'‘bafters to diow 
the OUA and CIS what they're made of.

A trade by Windsor Spitfires gener¬ 
al manager Warren Rydid snapped a 
five-game losing streak this past week- 
end and earned five out of a possible six 
points in the process. 

In the wake of dropping four consec¬ 
utive games and only winning one of 
eigjti games, Rychd made a call to the 
Barrie Gobs and acquired 19-year old 
left winger Brendan Lemieux, who 
was a second round NHL draft pick in 
2014 by foe Buffalo Sabres and b cur¬ 
rently signed with the Winnipeg Jets. 

Rychd felt his team needed a shot in 
the arm and foe Spitfires felt Lemieuxs 
NHL-caliber offensive impact right 
away as the gritty forward racked up six 
points on four goals and two assists in 
three games. 

Thewedtend began with a 4-3 overtime 
loss to the Mississau^ Stedheads at the 
WFCU Centre Dec 8, but bounced 
back to blank foeSamta Sting 3-Oon the 
road the next night on foe strength of 
29 saves by Mike DiPietro and a natural 
hat trick from Lexnieux. Two days lata; 
Windsor capped off the weekend with 
a 4-3 overtime victory over the CHLs 
third-ranked team in foe Kitchener 

Less than ax hours after foe Lemieux 
trade went through, the Winnipeg Jets 
product was in a Spitfires uniform and 
made his presence felt by delivering 
multiple body checks and collecting 
three foots in one shift midway through 
the first period against Mississauga. 

Lemieux skated on Windsor^ top line 
aforyirie right wing Christian Fisch¬ 
er and centre Logan Brown and head 
coach Rocky Thompson said he likes 
foe potential the trio have to become a 
dominant line in foe QHL 

"No doubt Lemieux is going to beabig 
addition to this team and to the success 
of this hockey dubT Thompson said 
"That line is one that can compete and 
be up their against any first line in fob 
league I think that line is going to be im ¬ 
portant for us and a 1% catalyst to our 
success this season and to a playoff run" 

The weekend did not start out as well 
as Windsor had hoped as they trailed

ing Mississauga 11-8 in the frame Af¬ 
ter Dan Beaudoin and Jalen Charfidd 
took consecutive penalties in foe second 
period foe Stedheads took a timeout 
to rest their top power play unit - all of 
whkh were NHL draft picks or are eli¬ 
gible for this selection this summer. As 
Beaudoirfe penalty expired Owen Tip¬ 
pett whipped a wrist shot past Hug^^ 
for a 24) lead 

Windsor kept procure in the Stedheads 
zone and finished foe period with 24 
total shots on goal but were unable 
to solve Mississauga net minder Jack 
Hina Brown scored hbshdthofthe sea¬ 
son assisted by Bradley Latour and Le¬ 
mieux oo a power play with 4:22 left in 
tiie third period to cut the deficit in half 
Windsor would get another power pby 
opportunity less than five minutes later 
and this time the new addition would 
score his first goal as a Spitfire on a re¬ 
bound to register his second point of the 
night and tie the game 2-2. 

The lineup of Brown, Fischer and Le¬ 
mieux continued to dominate in the 
offensive zone throughout foe third but 

itwas a four-on-fouropportonity whkh 
led to some wide open hockey with 
time winding down. Windsors Aaron 
Luchuk would show off of his skill set 
when he picked up a roiling puck and 
decked around Hinn and put the Spit¬ 
fires up 3-2 with 3:11 remaining in the 

Mississauga would pull their goalie with 
under 90 seconds left in regulation and 
would cash in on a rebound with just a 
fraction under one minute left and send 
foe game into overtime with each team 
having earned a point after 60 minutes 
of regulation ended in a 3-3 tie Windsor 
outshot Mississauga 36-21 in regulation 
but would once again need an extra 
frame to decide a victor. Each team had 
their chances but a big save from Hugh- 
son on a breakaway was shortly fol¬ 
lowed up by a game-winning goal from 
Damian Bourne at 3:42 of overtime 

“1 thought we deserved to winT Le¬ 
mieux said 4 *We out shot them and I 
fed we played pretty wdl Obviously 
I wanted to get a win in my first game 
with Windsor but it wasrit in the cards. 
It was a good game; we had a good team 

effort I just had trouble remembering 
my line-mates namesT 

The next night was Windsors first of 
eight meetings with the Samia Sting this 
season and Thompson vailed it foe big¬ 
gest game of year. The Spitfires answered 
their head coadfe call and snapped a 
nagging, five-game losing skid in a 3-0 
victory over foe Sting Dec. II. 

Lemteux scored all three of his goals 
in the third period after neither team 
could find the back o f the net for the first 
40-plus minutes. Fischer assisted on ail 
three goals and three separate Spifires 
defensemen - Mikhail Sergachev, Lo¬ 
gan Stanley and Chatfidd - aB chipped 
in with an assist as Windsor moved five 
points up on Samia for tap spot in the 
OHIs West division. 

Two days later it was Chatfiekfs seventh 
goal of the season which served as the 
overtime winner in foe Spitfires 4-3 vic¬ 
tory' over the CHIs thiiri-nmked Kitch¬ 
ener Rangers in front of 4610 at foe 
WFCU Centre Dec. 13, Hie 19-year- 
old defenseman was in perfect position 
to swat home a Latour rebound which 
gave Windsor its second straight win. 

The confidence is back, weve been 
playing good the last two weeks,” Chat- 
fidd said **We just wererit getting any 
bounces but this week we did" 

The Spits took a 2-0 lead into the 
dressing room after 20 minutes on the 
strer^fo of goals by Cristiano DiGiadn- 
to and Gabriel Vikrdi in a 32-second 
span of the opening period After goals 
by Darby Uewefiyn and Gustaf Franzen 
got the Rangers bade even at 2-2, La¬ 
tour capitalized on a Lemieux rebound 
putting the Spits up 3-2 with a power 
ptay marks- at 15:31 of foe second pe¬ 
riod Ryan Madnnis scored Kitchener 
to force overtime, setting the stage for 
Chatfietcfe heroics, 

DiPtetro made 27 saves for the win and 
Inke Richardson made 26 saves but 
took foe toss while Kitchener dropped 
to 23-3-4 

The Spits will next see action when they 
balde with the Saginaw Spirit at foe 
WFCU Centre Dec 17. The teams will 
meet again two nights later to wrap up 
the pre-holiday portion of foar sched¬ 
ules Puck drop on both nights is at 7:05

In fact lots of people haven! bothered 
to make any this year* Oh perhaps they 
have, but more to themselves, and less 
on an alLor-nothing public scale 

Its a natural human indination to try to 
better oneself after certain things M to 
the wayside in life. ft happens to every¬ 
one Temporary life changes like theses 

Eventually, the time comes when we 
want to rectify some of the things out of 
place in our lives. 

Say it with me that day does not have to 
be New Years Day! 

However, if you see New Years Day as a 
great day for you to change your habits, 
or jump into some new pastimes, thafs 
awesome and tbaes absolutely nothing 
wrong with it 

For those of you who areht concerned 
with a timeline to better yourself; thafs 
totally great too 

The only thing that should matter in the 
case of serf-improvement is die inspi¬ 
ration to do it The dale and length erf 
time it takes doesn’t matter in the grand 
scheme of things, 

Realistically speaking a date on the 
calendar should not make you fed tike 

comes down, its cold-thal makes a lot 
of common resolutions tike going to the 
gym and buying healthy groceries super 

Additionally, it means were forcing our¬ 
selves to undergo a big change we may 
not necessarily be ready to beginner 
in some cases, complete at all-based 
on that calendar dale* The pressure of 
starting and completing a goal within a 
year, or constantly keeping tabs on it in 
the bade of our minds, can be extreme¬ 
ly stressful and hard on our self-esteem 
when we’re not meeting our goals as we 
would like to be 

If you have any land of goal setting in 
mind for the days, months, and yearf s) 
ahead, theres something very important 

There is a theory behind why resohi- 

Resdutions feB under both of those 
categories. Making a resolution to “eat 
healthier’’ or "lose weight” without any 
more specific timelines or flexibility 
sounds absolutely daunting-and is, es¬ 
pecially if its going from a sedentary life¬ 
style to working out four days a week at 
the gym to lose weight rfs just not prac- 
tical to expect it from ourselves. 

Now, what has been shown to succeed 
are smaller, more defined goak> whkh 
for some may contribute to that big¬ 
ger picture of eating healthier or losing 
weight From a research standpoint, 
this is the way toga Insteadon will eat 
healthier this year? a goal like Twill eat 
one piece of fruit a da/' is much more 
reachable and reasonable than a com¬ 
plete diet overhaul* 

Starting on a smaBer scale and build¬ 
ing up from those lfttfe steps is the key 

approaches to take to starting a change 
within yourself or even outside yourself 
in your immunity* 

Lastly, if you’re not into resolutions or 
goal setting for yourseif dials total¬ 
ly fine As you may Irave figured out, 
there are no Resolution Mice coming 
around to make sure you’re cutting 
down on your spending and Skyping 
your parents more than you did in 2015. 

Sdfchanging goals are amazing and 
admirable no matter when you make 
them, and no matter how bug it takes 
for you to complete them: the import¬ 
ant part is you’re bettering yourself for 
you* Serfimprovemenkm 
can be a lifelong process, so try not to 
sweat it if completing your aspirations 
takes longer than you were originally 
hopingfor. Thafis infinitely better than 
giving up and not doing anything about 

daily jam-packed holidays, getting skk, 
and exams can all be interruptions long 

you’re doing something wrong in your 
life. Thali a lot of stress! Not to mention

New Year, New Policies 


Arts Editor 

With the New Year inspiring people to 
make resolutions and charges, the Ca¬ 
nadian government is making some 
changes of its own on a national and 
provincial standpoint 

In effect since Jan 1, student loan pro¬ 
grams nationwide will no longer be 
reducing support to working students 
for every dollar they earn beyond $100 
perweek On top of allowing students to 
save a little bit extra into their accounts, 
this is essentially the first step in the 
governments efforts to lessen financial 
strains for those currently on or seeking 
student bans More information can be 
found on canteamca. 

Another policy change is in effect only 
in Ontario^ yet it has proven to be a tat 
more contusing. Drivers and cyclists are 
now required to yield the entirety of foe 
mad at school crossings and pedestrian 
crossovers. Its natural for one to assume 
the crossovers apply to just about any 

standard intersection However ifs im¬ 
portant to keep in mind its not the same 
thing as a crosswalk. 

“There® crossways and foeres cross¬ 
walks, For example our crosswalks at 
the intersection of Sunset and Wyan¬ 
dotte aren’t induded in the new kwf 
said Mike MacKinnon, director of 
Campus Police Services, “ftk not cross¬ 
walks like we have on campus here 16 
those pedestrian crossovers that have 
that over-hanging yellow light” 

MacKinnon went on to say there are 
very few crossovers around thedty itself 
As a result it doesrit apply to students in 
the area. But for anyone who drives or 
cydes, violation of the new policy results 
in a fine between $150 and $500 on top 
of three demerit points on your license 
In this case, ifs always important to keep 
attention to any pedestrian and school 
crossings if you find yourself traversing 
anywhere within Ontario 

More information can be found chi the 
Ontario Ministry of Transportaioris 


Students walk the crosswalk at the corner of Sunset and Wyandotte . This is not the same thing as a pedes¬ 
trian crossover, which has been subject to a new provincial policy change where drivers and cyclists must 
yield the entirely of the road to pedestrians whenever there's a school crossing or pedestrian crossing sign.

Movie Review - Star Wars: 
The Force Awakens 


Lance Contributor 

A breath of fresh air is what one can 
best describe “Episode VII: The Force 
Awakens,” After the debacle Jar far 
Binks and the prequels that scarred the 
lives of Star Wars fens across the globe. 
EpisodeVII is the best possfcksequdto 
the original trilogy and a love letter for 
tans, accompanied by beautiful visuals 
and characters ina galaxy for, for away. 

ft has been 30 years since the Battle of 
Endor> Darth Vader defeated by Luke 
Skywalker and the Galactic Empire 
derimafced by the Rebel Alliance, the 
First Order has risen from the rem¬ 
nants of foe ruined evil Empire Princess 
Leia (Carrie Fisher) is now a General 
and is part of the Resistance in search 
of ha- brother Luke Skywalker (Mark 

HamiR) who has disappeared under 
mysterious drcumstances. In tliese tu¬ 
multuous times in the galaxy, foe new 
face of the Sifo, Kyfo Ren is leading the 
storm troopers to acquire foe coordi¬ 
nates that wffl lead him to Skywalkerk 
location In his endeavors, Finn (John 
Boyega) > a storm trooperwho questions 
his position within the Older and Rey 
(Daisy Ridley), a scavenger who wan¬ 
ders without aim on the planet of Jakku 
grt caught up in foe affair and pave the 
story forward for the inevitable sequels. 
Along foeir Journey they come across 
Han Solo and his copilot Chewhacca, 
and together the party dodging through 
the dutches of the Order go on a galactic 

I^aurels must be handed over to J. J. 
Abrams, the director of the movie He 
has managed to mold this popular cul¬ 

tural icon into creating an interesting are 
and foroughout foe narration you see 
that every sequence has been produced 
for foe screen with care The vision that 
George Lucas had created in theor^pnal 
trilogy got lost in the prequels because 
of its bad dialogues, acting and the pro¬ 
gression of the story The Force Awak¬ 
ens has managed to safely put aside all 
that negative baggage and conjured a 
much-needed reinvigoration for the 

East paced slick action sequences and 
the return of old iconic characters are 

just the tips of the icebergwhen it conies 

* ■ 

to the film. Every character like a new 
Droid BB-8, the Resistance pilot Poe 
Dameron (Oscar Isaac) in a minor role 
and notable perfoimaiices given by Rid¬ 
ley and Boyega show what foe prequels 
were lacking, a conviction towards foe 

characters they are playing That de¬ 
ment has been translated for foe screen 

Seeing foe older cast is an king on the 
cake and they have not just been shoe- 
homed to give nostalgic moments to 
fena They exist because they havea sto¬ 
ry to tdl The passing of age has dianged 
them Things have not been foe same 
after foe Battle of Endor and you can 
see that reflect through the actions and 
emotions exhibited by Soto, I^eia and 

Abrams is known for narratives being 
too fast paced at times (Star Tkk), but 

ens has been well padded out creating 
a balance between characterization and 
action, a perfect fusion of foe two 

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has 
similar undertones like “The New 
Hope,” but that aspect establishes foe 
characters in foe Star Wars universe 
and propels foe story forward ft lias 
nostalgic moments and moments of 
awe ft has the ingredients of what Star 
Wars should be and it is a moment of 
triumph for Abrams to give life to it It 
is a story of characters that are real and 
break foe barriers of fiction they resick 
in and somehow in afloffob, foe humor 
is never lost, and that makes the film a 
“force” to be reckoned with

Movie Review - The Hateful Eight 

order to reach the better compelling 


Lance Contributor 

l have a tricky rektioaship with Quentin 
Tarantincfe films, I love them, rite ones 
that I have seen al least, and yet there is 
a strange hesitation that occurs for me 
when tire subject of watching his latest 
or re- watching one of his dassks comes 
up. This did not char^ for Tarantinofc 
eighth studio film; “The Hateful EightT 
as the initial interest mdfor excitement 
was not immediately present When 
the trailer premiered a few months back 
and I finished watching M was disap¬ 
pointed Not much excitement seemed 
to exist within this film What makes 
a Tarantino film such an awesome 
experience is that once I commit to 
watching one, the hesitation I felt simply 
evaporates away, and again, this did not 
change for “The Hateful EighlT I was 
happy to be proven wrong byTarantino 
once again. 

This is a different type of film for the 
filmmaker In the press leading up to the 
films release, Tarantino has said many of 
his influences came from the westerns 
of the midT90Ck That influence is ev- 
id ent mostly in the overall pacing of the 
film Tarantino has always tinkered and 
experimented with pacing but here he 
elects for a timed bomb with a very slow 
bum string and it absolutely'fits the nar¬ 
rative be is presenting 

'Hie film takes place a tew years after 
the end of the Civil War where John 
Ruth 'The Hangman" (Kbit Russell), a 
bounty hunter, is heading to Red Rode 
with prisoner Daisy Domergue (Jenni¬ 
fer Jason Leigh) to have her stand trial 
and hang for her alleged crimes. Along 
the way they meet up with Major Mar¬ 
quis West (Samuel L Jackson) a fellow 
bounty hunter and former solkferinthe 
CM War with a few bounties to col¬ 
lect on his own. As wdL Chris Mannk 

(Walton Goggins) Joins the trio claim¬ 
ing he is the new sheriffofRed Rock To 
escape an oncoming blizzard, they head 
to Minnies Haberdashery' where they 
run into four other individuals sharing 
in the establishments warm resources, 
Que the stow burning string to quicken 
ever so slightly more and more as noth¬ 
ing is truly as it seems. 

What is perhaps nsDst strange though 
is that the films greatest strength is also 
its dear weakness. The movie conies 
very dose to a three-hour runtime and 
it is Tarantinos most dialogue heavy 
production. Characterization becomes 
the key within the script very quick* 
ly as Tarantino dedicates the time to 
filling out the lives and backstories of 
each individual hded up at Minnie^ 
Haberdashery, ft is quite the tocredMe 
accomplishment as, in my mind, Taran¬ 
tino and his actors succeed in provid¬ 
ing complete vrf-iounded characters. 

Somewhere dose to the midway point 
oflhe film I asked my buddy sitting next 
to me, 'Who do you trust right now?" 
and I asked because I wasn't sure who 
I should be trusting. I was constantly 
curious about the motivations and in¬ 
tentions of each character and I had to 
question and re-question the happen* 
ing^ of the plot in order to reevaluate 
what it was I was actually anticipating. 
This focus on characterization leads to 
some incredible storytelling payoffs in 
the final act, however there were times, 
particularly in the first hour of the film, 
where exposition became the subject it¬ 
self This lead to seme moments fading 
overburdened and simply boring, Sto¬ 
rytelling reigns supreme overall thot^Ji 
and these moments of ovemhance on 

moments. A notable highlight scene is 
a monologue for Samuel L Jackson that 
will shock you and make you laugh in 
the same breath. 

"The Hateful Eigjhf is not Tarantinos 
best film, but ft is perhaps one of his 
most interesting> and almost certainly 
one of his most captivating. His dia¬ 
logue, while heavy handed in spots, is 
still Just as crisp and free flowing as ever 
and his actors (some Tarantino veterans, 
some newcomers) are more than up to 
rite task of bringing his complicated 
characters to life. Fm not sure what it 
was I was entirely expecting going into 
this movie; but Fm more than satisfied 
with how I felt about it when I left the

Movie Review - The Big Short 

result, I would say, is largely successful 
as the feds coining from history and 

and Selena Gomezs, is completely ran¬ 


Lance Contributor 

"The Big Short" surprised me in a lot 
of ways. Its formal, presentation, and 
organization g> agtinst the image of 
what a film traditionally looks life To 
put it plainly a large chunk of the film 
is dedicated to giving a fourth wait 
breaking explanation of the financial 
terms being floated around during the 
period this film is dealing with. That pe¬ 
riod b the few years before the eventual 
US economy crash of2008 that, as this 
film demonstrates, began in part due 
to the housing market crashing first 
If you were to ask me, “what does this 
film do?” I would simply tdtt you that it 
tries to explain how and why toe hous¬ 
ing maiket foiled in United Stated The 

the wit stemming from Adam McKay's 
script and style match abundantly wdl 

AT first gjance, the attempts to explain 
things to you, toe audience, directly 
may seem a bit in your free (literally) 
and preachy in a way but when the 
surprise of toe format wears off, wbai 
remains is a compelling dramedy that 
refuses to let society off the hook for 
deciding to not pay attention* While 
McKay and his saeenwritir^ partner 
Charles Randc%to do point toe finger 
at the corporations responsible for eco¬ 
nomic destruction, they arerit afraid to 
expose toe opposir^ view that suggests 
the everyday individual is not being as 
observant as they could or should be; 
toe focus lajgdy stays on toe corpora¬ 

tions though One of the reasons this 
format proves to be so successful is due 
to the character of Jared Vennett played 
by Ryan Gosling* Goslir^ provides all of 
fire exterior exposition and is the only 
who directly speaks to the screen. He 
acts as a sort of reality show host, a guide 
that brings us along for a very needlessly 
complicated ride through recent history. 

This breaking the fourth wall aspect 
allows toe comedy of the film to enter 
more naturally Tenns like subprime 
mortgages, ooflateralized debt obliga¬ 
tions (CDOs) and synthesized CDGs 
bombard the language and then Gos- 
ling comes in and flips a switch. “Ks pret¬ 
ty confiBing,r%ht? Doesn’t it make you 
feel bored or stupid? Heres Margo* Rob¬ 
bie in a btfhtub to explain.Robbies 
cameo, along with Anthony Bourdains 

dom, but it allows toe complicated info 
to be extrapolated into simpler wording. 
These moments are the filmmakers al¬ 
lowing their audience to take a breather 
and go over what they just heard Gos¬ 
lings other function is to collect toe sep¬ 
arate storyline pieces of our characters 
into one whole. Christian Bale, Steve 
Carrefl and Brad Pitt never interact in 
toe movie, and yet thdr respective sto¬ 
ries help us delve deeper into toe issues* 
Each actor, and HI include Coding in 
this, is so good in this movie that there 
b no one dear highlight And since the 

point of thb story toe financial abb 
is, toe actors allow themselves to blend 
nxOT into the searm of the narrative. Ev¬ 
erything about tob feels real and Adam 
McKay does not want you to forget it, 
because all of thb did hqppen 

“TheBigSborf could be described as a 
mini dictionary of sorts It b a demon¬ 
stration of facts and jargon in simplicity 
and yet constantly feds like an attempt 
to slap the audknee in the face and wake 
us all up to the realities of one of the big¬ 
gest financial and economic coOapses 
in history. Above ail dse, thb film riled 
me up and it will have the same effect

visual arts events, Mckee said the LeB- 

d group will have a few shows up their 

sleeves within the next few months, pos¬ 
sibly cdlaborating with the Art Gallery 
of Windsor over this time. Ultimately, 
Mckee hopes the season will be keeping 
its momentum of delivering memora¬ 
ble events all while furthering the en¬ 
lightenment of residing SoCA students 

'With the different artists and musicians 
that were able to bring in, it just enriches 
and ks anotiw opportunity for 
to get additional inspiratfon 
but outside of the classroom," Mckee 

Whik they dorit have as many events 

under their calendar; University Pay¬ 
ers is also hard at work as they begin to 

tadde the last three shows of their 57th 
season. According to marketing coor¬ 
dinator Anna Gaika, the last semester 
was subject to overwhelmin^y positive 
response, noting the glowing recqrtion 
from their most recent comedic pro¬ 
duction “ScapinoT They hope to keep 
the ball idling upon shifting bade to 
drama with the upcoming “An Experi¬ 
ment With an Air Pump" 

Tfs a bit of science; its a bat erf mystery 
Gaika said It has a Me bit more of an 

intellectual aspect to it, because its arc¬ 
ing the question of how far you wuid 

go for the sake of science” 

Gaika said rehearsals with “Air Pump" 

began before Christmas and theyre 
staying pre-emptive as preparations for 
next years season are already under¬ 
way. Following the scientific drama, the 
group will then move on to the bitter¬ 
sweet “Dancing at Lughnasa" and will 
oondude with the period comedy “The 
Double Dealer 

Gaika has also noted an increase in gen¬ 
eral student awareness and attendance, 

whidi has been credited towards the 

promotion efforts done by the younger 

dramatic art students. While its a tong- 
term process in the making, Gaika finds 
the awareness to be a step in the right 
direction as they keep to the goal of pro¬ 
viding strong theatrical work 

“Us always our goal, to produce high 
quality, high caliber productions, and do 
Justice to the type erf productions w^ve 
selected" Gaika said 

“An Experiment With an Air Pump" 
will premiere at the Essex Hall Theatre

The Bank Refunds More Than 400 Tickets 
To Cancelled New Year’s Eve Party 


News Editor 

New Years Eve is a busy time for many 
and sometimes things fell through. 

This is especially true for multi-dub 
and bar owner Pairidc Kim who had 
to shut down The Bank M^itkhib after 
building it up to be the place to be for the 

A bailiffs notice which was left on The 
Rankfc door prior to Christmas, stated 
the owners of the establishment owed 
their landlord, Dante Capaldi, nearly 
$120*000 m rent and fees. 

According to a statement of daim is¬ 
sued Jan. 5 by The Bank, around Dec 
30, they received a notice from fhdr 
landlord they would need to meet “fi¬ 
nancially extraneous conditions” in¬ 
cluding a payment of SKXOOO, 100 per 
eamofaQlkf^ were to 

be paid to the province of Ontario, The 
Bank would have to pay the bailiff for 
his attendance at the event and the dub 
would have to make anew lease agree¬ 

ment for the next five years. 

The agents and owners of The Bank 
stated in their daim “ „ foe imposition 
of foe foregoing terms was tantamount 
to extortion, and is an exemplification 
of foe high-handed* malidous, callous, 
inequitable, arbitrary and perverse con¬ 
duct of Ontario and for partkuiadyCa- 
paldi in its dealings with tte plaintiff in 
this regard" 

However, Kim said they had agreed via 
e-mailed correspondence to meet these 
terms Dec 30, “in an effort to avoid an 
incident whkh would dearly be cata¬ 
strophic to the plaintiffs goodwi and 
reputation,” as stated in foeir daim. 

The following day, Capakii added fur¬ 
ther terms to be met if the The Bank 
wished to be open for their New dear's 
Eve party" whkh induded an immediate 
payment of $20,000, $200 per hour paid 
to the bailiff for his attendance, liquor 
sales revenue acknowledgement of the 
previously menttonedoutstaiidirg rent, 
as well as proof of insurance, 

Rrithermom the daim states The Bank 
did everything they could to remain 

open but the added terms kept comii^ 
and itwas very hard for them to keep up 
with it all 

Kim said he hopes foe statemmt of 
daim is able to darify the situation to all 
with any questions. 

“I want to let everyone know that all 
tickets that were purchased were re¬ 
funded by me personally before mid¬ 
night;* said Kim <f We did all we could 
to open and it was such an unfortunate 
drcumstance that we could not” 

The daim said over400 ticketswere pre¬ 
sold for the event bid Kim said it was 
made near impossible for them to stay 
open especially after Capaldi and his 
jpoup stopped responding to any forms

Halfway through their conclusive year, 
the graduating BFA Acting da© came 
together for a performance showcase, 
which was open to the public on the

The actors are given throe minutes to 
perform two different monologues in 

front of professionals ranging from cast¬ 

ing directors to agents. Part of the acting 
showcase is a product of a dass, which 
teaches the graduating gro up how to 
sustain in the business, as well as net¬ 
working tips which would hdp provide 
a leg up following graduation. 

With the showcase reprosentmgtheai-

the nerves in a more positive light

The actors are expected to have nearly' a

Brendan Aymer and Rachel Tremblay 
wereoneof many couples to attend a re¬ 
cent wedding expo, visiting vendors to 
yield a few extra ideas to implement for 
fodr wedding in September. A day over 
two years in the making, their reason for 
the coniniitment was simple. 

T&only one dayT Ayroer said 

‘Ttbu remember it for the rest of your 
lifeT Tremblay continued 

Mora than 100 vendors spanning ewer 
a dt®en services came together for the 
16th annual Wedding Odyssey which 
was held on the Jam 9 weekend at the 
Goriaro Guk Be it focal, regional or 
provincial, there was plenty of options 
available for couples looking to have 

their wedding customized down to the 
last detail. 

brides sometimes don t know what to 
do. They search out each vendor kind 
of like an interview process,” said event 
director Laura Tibem. Tfe kind of like a 
one slopshop*' 

You had several vendors, which focused 
on lavish wedding decor Thera were 
focal dothing outlets, which had tuxe¬ 
dos and wedding gowns on display and 
ready to catch the eye. Not to mention 
a slew of video production companies 
and photography services, or perhaps 
if couples want to make the day extra 
memorable, they can go on a trolley 
tour around various wineries or brewer¬ 
ies within Windsor-Essex. 

‘The ■ tdding parties like it because 
ift very unique and nostalgic,” said Bill 
Baker, owner and operator ofthe Wind* 
sor-Essex Trolley Tour 

With several of the vendor services 

overlapping each other, it brings a great 
wealth of options for couples who may 
be fesdnated by the more minute as¬ 
pects of the ceremony To an extent, 
this is reflected on some of the vendors 
themselves, particularly with the Wine- 
craft winemaking company who spe- 
dalize in providing anywhere between 
200 and 300 different flavors for wed¬ 
ding wines. 

"They get to come in and they get to 
choose from a long list of different kinds 
of wines that they can make,” said Wrne- 
cralt owner Jim Ryan “TheyTl choose

Windsor Arena Jaa 9. With the win, 
the Blue & Gold improve to 10-7-2 on 
the year and are now in a three-way tie 
for second place with the Guelph Gry¬ 
phons and Western Mustang?, 

lancers head coach Kevin Hamlin said 
it was a good response game after drop 
ping a 4-0 decision the York Lions at 
heme the night prior 

"We had a good rebound pme led by 
our goaltender? Hamlin said "We got 
into a Me bit of penalty trouble but we 
were able to pull off some big kilk Your 
bestpenalty killer is your gpaitenderand 
he certainly made some big saves today 
during those times,” 

The Badgers opened the scoring on a 
power pfay goal 352 into the first period 
when Skytar Pacheco and Mitch Nar- 
di setup Josh Timpano who put it past 
Doan for 1-0 lead Windsor trailed for 
the duration of the first and a majority 
ofdie second before takingadvantage of 
a Badger penalty with six minutes kft in 
the second 

Windsor would make the most of 

their opportunity and even the game 
1-1 when Justice Dundas and Dane 
Phaneuf found Eric Nod at the side 
of the net, who then buried home his 
eighth goal of the campaign with a 
power play marker The Lancers would 
quiddyniakeit2-l with 2:58 left in the 
second as Tyler Ness decked around 
Brock goalie dim Windsor and tucked 
it into the net for his seventh goal of the 
season, with his line mates Nod and 
Dundas also both picking up the assists 

"After getting shutout players start the 
question themsdves but 1 knew our 
power play and special teams would 
get bettor as time wore on? said Ham¬ 
lin. “We ve been off for 30-plus days and 
thati a long time. But our penalty kill 
got better as the game went on and our 
power play got bettor and our five-cm- 
five play was stdkr Even against York 
I thought it was great: and it was bettor 
tonight 1 ’ 

It took just 2S seconds into the third 
period for Ness to strike once again and 
give the Lancers a 3-1 lead. Brock cut 
the lead to one at 8:23 of the third as An¬ 
drew Coupland and Dan Tand setup 
Greg Jambroskh fir his second goal of 
the season 

With the Brock goalie pulled for the ex¬ 
tra-attacker and lots of traffic in front of 

ihenet, Windsors MikeChristou made 

ihe play of the game when he laid down 
in front of a Badger slap shot from the 
point Christods sacrifice would pay off 
shortly after as Dylan Denomme picked 
up a loose puck in the neutral zone and 
secure the win with an empty netter 

win and that was certainly something 
we needed from him at the time" 

Ness applauded Christous courage and 
said the I ancers are going to need more 
efforts like that to be able to win dose 

Ness said “If everybody keeps doing 

that well be winning a lot more games. 
You get a couple bumps and bruises but 
it was a good pick me up for everyone 13 '

win for file Lancers while Windsor re-

Quick Start Propels Lady Lancers 
Hockey Team To Victory Over UOIT 


Sports Editor 

The Lancer womens hockey team start¬ 
ed 2016 with awdbeamed victory over 
the UOIT Ridgebacks at South Wind¬ 
sor Arena this past weekend 

Shawna Lesperanoe and Krystin Law¬ 
rence both had three-point perfor¬ 
mances and Ingrid Sandven picked up 
her fourth win in goal for Windsor as 
they look to move up the QUA stand¬ 
ings over the final 11 games of the reg¬ 
ular season. 

The win is the Lancers third in a row 
and they now sport a 3-S-l record while 
the Ridgebacks fa! to file exact same re¬ 
cord Windsor head coadi Jim Hunter 
said he was proud of hb team for step¬ 
ping up with a big win white statir^ the 
importance of the next five games if 
they want to move up the standings and 

reach thdr goal of a spat in the OUA 

"These are games that we should win if 
we pky our game and we need to take 
advantage of that” said Hunter “We 
carft make too many mistakes in the 
earfy part of the second half We cant 
afford any mistakes coming down the 

The Lancers found thdr scorir^ touch 
quickly in the first period After the vis¬ 
itors took an earty penalty the Lancers 
opened the scoring at 1:49 on the power 
play with a goal by Natalie Barrette with 
assists being credited to Rachel Chantler 
and JIB Rops, The Lancers then extend¬ 
ed thdr lead a mere 30 seconds later 
when the rookie Lesperance and file 
veteran Erinn Noseworthy set up the 
sniper Lawrence to give Windsor a 2-0 

The same line would strike once again 
seven minutes later when Lesperance 

and Noseworthy onoe again set up Law¬ 
rence for her second of the game and 
seventh erf the season whidi gave the 
hosts a three goal lead midway through 
the frame 

T thought we came out flying? Law r - 
rence said "We got throe quick goals in 
the first paiod which was exactly what 
we needed” 

The Ridgebacks got one back at 11:14 
on a goal by Meek Gorda to dose out 
the first but the [.ancers started the 
second period just like they started the 
first- fast Windsor managed to score 24 
seconds into the frame with Lesperance 
earning her third point erf the game and 
seventh goal of the season. Just over a 
minute later the Lancm extended (heir 
lead to 5-1 an a goal by Davis Smfth 
with assists credited to Taylor Sheppard 
while Lawrence also picked up a helper 
to give her a three-poirti night 

*T thought the first and second period 

were the best two periods weve put 
together back-to-back this season? 
Hunter said “We were very strong and 
mentally into the game but in the third 
period it was the exact opposite. We sat 
on a 5-1 lead and then dkfo’t play very 

After that the Ridgebacks mounted a 
mini comeback in the back half of the 
third period with a pair of goals from 
Kasside Nauboris and Teresa Homer 
but despite their effort it was not good 
enough to overcome the Lancers ear¬ 
ly offensive power Contender Ingrid 
Sandven once a^in picked up fire wm 
for the Lancers and made 25 saves along 
the way. 

tr We worked hard as a team, got into 
some penalty trouble which cost us a 
few goals but we stayed in it and got 
the win;' Lawrence said "It was a great 
start to the second half erf the season es~ 
pedafly with the position we are [-at] in 

file standings. Every game we play from 
nowon is do or die for us but I bdieve 
with the talent and hard work from the 
girls, we will be making some upsets 
andI definitely think we will be making 
those playoffs?. 

Hunter said there were a lot of positives 
to take from the game but stated the 
Lancm have tobe better at holding onto 
a lead to be prepared for file stiff com¬ 
petition thnxigboutthe OUA schedule 

Ttar ib to win three in a row and beat a 
couple of good teams has let us build up 
our confidence? said Hunter ""Now we 
just need to build off that and see if we 
can go on a Me run here to get us back

sending the 6T! 23o lbs. power forward 

to Windsor along with a second and 
fourth-round draft pick in exchange for 
the oft-used Luke Kirwaa 

Tm still getting used to the system 
so when that becomes second nature 
the offence will come” said Chatham 
‘They have had a kit of success so Tm 
looking to buy in here and get used to 

it I played to Plymouth for a while and 
we were rivals with them for a number 
of games so Fve had my dust-t^s with 
some of these guys but Tm very excited 
to come to an organization like this thats 
a proven winner and a team thats really 
going for it this year “ 

Chatham got to show off his offensive 

skills when he sniped a power-play 
tally past Cote netmtoder MaKenrie 
Blackwood for an early 1-0 lead which 
Windsor bdd at the end of the first peri¬ 
od Barrie came out with a vengeance in 
the second period and qukkly tied the 
game on Andrew Mangiapanes 20th of 
ke then gave the Cote a lead they would 
not relinquish when he scored on a feed 
from forma - Spitfire Anthony Stefono. 
Blackwood finished with 32 saves to 
Barries 24th victory of the season 

Windsor had little time to reflect on 
their loss as a date with Oshawa & the 
General Motors Genre homed the 
next evening The Generals are fighting 
for a playoff spot to the OHL eastern 
conference and played with intensity 
but were unrewarded during a scoreless

Huether finished off Anthony Cireflis 
pass on a two-on-one opportunity for a

minutes of the game, Windsor took 
advantage of an Oshawa penalty and 
scored on the power play with Mikhail

pressed with under one minute to go in

Fischer and Vilardi both finished with 
three points each in Windsors 25th vic¬

a reunion of sorts for Spits overage for¬ 
ward Brad Latour> where he played the 
bulk of his OHL career and won a Me¬ 
morial Q^dmipfonshfo with the dub 
in 2014-15. Latour did not shy away 
from expressing his opinion on the po¬ 
tential ofhis current team however

The Windsor Lancer track and fidd 
team kicked off 2016 in style with a 
number of impressive perfoffrnanoes at 
the 55th Can Am Classic this weekend 
at the St Denis Centre. 

The two-day meet saw a new school re¬ 
cord set, a new indoor peraonal best and 
three Lancets qualify for the national 
championships in March. 

After suffering an injury and missing 
out on competing last season, Lanc¬ 
er thrower Jordana Badley-Costello 
made a big impression at the meet by 
setting a new record in the womens 
weight throw with an impressive toss 
of 1795 meters and surpassing the CIS 
auto-standard by over one meter Bad- 
ky-Cbstdfo placed second in the event 
behind Ifcrks Brittany Crew; who has 
represented Canada at multiple interna¬ 
tional events and set a new meet record 
with a throw of 13,10 meter* 

Chris Waugh and Milos Savic both 
qualified for the GS trade and field 
championships in the mens pole vault 
by dearirg the auto-standard of 479 
meters and placing first and second in 
the event 

Waugh said it was a great day for Wind¬ 
sors vmifterc overall but he Mt very 
focused and determined to punch his 
ticket to CIS once again. 

*1 knew throughout die week that once 
the competition mode was turned on 
my jumpir^ would be more powerful 
and my speed down the runway is al¬ 
ways fester, so I knew bigger poles would 
be needed” Waugh said “My jumps at 
494 metm Mt like a tryout with my 

new pole and making adjustments was 
difficult but my third attempt I man¬ 
aged to pull together a solid jump and 
get my hip hd^it much higher, though 
I knocked the bar off with my chest? 

Waugh admitted he was a little disap¬ 
pointed he didn't get a personal best 
because he feels he is capable of jumping 
higher Ilian five meters, but was very 
happy with winning die competition 
and having training partner Savie right 
there beside him jumping high as usual 

"1 am excited to compete alongside 
him, we fove to push each other to jump 
higher? Waugh said “Alt in all this will 
be a fun season of huge jumps and no 
pressure to make standard, 1 think 1 can 
attack big heights that used to be terrify¬ 
ing when 1 was younger? 

On the womens side, Rachel Wdfe set 
a new indoor personal best in womens 
pole vault with a height of 378 meters 
and placed second overall in the event. 
Wolfe didn't end up clearing tire CIS 
auto standard but said it was encour¬ 
aging to hit a personal best at an eariy 

“I attempted the height (3,88) and was 
weD over it by 20 centimeters but came 
down on die bar at the end;" Wolfe said 
“l did up dealing 378 meters which was 
an indoor personal best You can never 
be mad with a personal best especially 
with the first meet of the season. It just 
means theres big things to come this 

Wolfe added she was exdted for her next 
meet since she had cleared but a 
small error made her knodt the bar off 

"I watched a couple videos after and its 
reassuring knowii^ fm there, so theres 
no pressure m dear this height soon? 

Wolfe said 'The competition this year is 

very motivating. Vfomempdevaulthas 
a very stadoed fidd lids year and I love it 
Good competition always pushes me to 
be the best lean be. I think for OUA and 
CIS ife gonna come down to whofe cm 
their game and who finishes the com- 
petffion with the least faults” 

IhreeofiierLancera captured gold med¬ 
als over the two-day event, beginning 
with Branden Wilhelm who placed first 

in the mens high jump with a height of 

205 meters. Akx Ullman placed first in 
the metis 1,000 meters with a time of

WMHA Showcases Hockeys Heritage During 
4th Annual Rick Murdoch Outdoor Classic 


Sports Editor 

The Windsor Minor Hockey Associ¬ 
ation brought dozens of food children 
mi thdr femilks together to embrace 
an old hockey tradition during the 4th 
Annual Rkk Murdoch Outdoor Classic 
at Lanspeary Raik this patf weekend 

WMHA president Dean Lapteire said 
it is good for the kids to be able to play 
hockey outdoors, although he joked 
there has only been one fault at each 
outdoor classic so fer. 

“Unfortunately, every year we have it, it 
snows? laughed Lapterre. “But it makes 
the kids a^redate playing bade at 
South Windsor Arena next and telling 
his dad how $eat it is to have a roof and 
som: h eat” 

Laptene said the homage the games 
heritage and ife importance to the 
community is the reason why WMHA 
named the event after Murdoch who 

began coaching back in 1975, Lapkrre 
added seeing parents talk about their 
experiences year after year gives even 
more reason forWMHA to bring hock¬ 
ey outside ^in next year-even jiist for 
one day 

T grew up here and [Lanspeary Park] 
Is where I learned to skate Wfe used to 
come eariy and if you helped the guy 
shovel he would tex you fiay for free? 
Lapierre said ‘K)nce they did the im¬ 
provements we thought it was a great 
opportunity to do something so we 
named it after Rick, a guy who has ded ¬ 
icated so much time to hockey, he can 
say he coached people 50-yeais old” 

A proud Rkk Murdoch had nothing 
but praise for the City of Windsor for 
covering up the Lansprary Park ke rink 
and also to the Windsor lions Qub 
who helped make significant improve¬ 
ments to the outdoor arena. 

Tf Don Sadler and the City of Wind¬ 
sor hadrit put a roof over this rink, it 
wouldn't have happened? Murdodi 

Multiple teams put a fierce performance 
in the dements on a slushy morning 
and afternoon, whkh brightened up 
ewen more with each chikfe smile. Car¬ 
ter Stario-Stannard, 7, along with his 
team toe Windsor Phantoms had a lot 
of fun playing on the outdoor rink de¬ 
spite its diaflenges. 

"With ail of the snow on the foe it made 
it hard to pass the puck but we played 
hard? Stasfo-Stannaid said. T definitely 
want to come back next year? 

Carters feiher Mike Siannard said it was 
a unique experience for the children 
but also a humbling experience for the 
multiple families in attendance who 
dared to brave the dements for the love 

Tt was a little cold but its nice to get the 
lads out there? Stannard said. “It was a 
great time, parents loved and the kids 
loved it boa Wei do it again next year 
for sure? 

A hot meal was offered to those who 
needed a break from ail erf the fun and 

at a table inside the Polish Community 
Centre across from the rink sat some erf 
the most influential members ofWrnd- 
sofs hockey community along wtih 
Murdoch, who is a lifetime number 
of the WMHA Aaoss from lapierre 
was Fred Baldwin, president of Wind’ 
sor AAA Zone and a man who has 
watched countless athletes rise through 
the minor hockey ranks and march to 
the NHL Along with Fred was his son 
Ryan, who played in over 150 OHL 
g^mes with 82 coming as a Windsor 
Spitfires, Baldwin ultimately won a 
Sutherland Cup as a key member of the 
LaSalle Vipers playoff run in 2010* 

A third generation of Baldwin was also 
there, as Ryaris ymu^ son Logan stood 
within his dads arms and had no prob¬ 
lem idling everyone how ccJd it was 
playing in the sub-zero temperatures 
Jaa 10, 

* Whafe neat for me is seeing someone 
like Ryan who came ijp fiiro^ the ^ 
tem and now they are bringing up thdr 
kids? Murdoch “Now Im running 

into grandparents who I played with or 
against Were dealing with three genera¬ 
tion here and that is kind of neat? 

The snow never stopped failing and 
there were more than a few sets of cold 
cheeks and a OHjpk cases of wind bum 
to go around, but thafe part of the beau¬ 
ty erf the good dd hockey gam e said 

“Logan said his fingers were getting odd 
and it was tough to handle the puck in 
the snow? Murdoch said **But thats 
outdoor hockey and that bm^ us back 
some of our memories, I played up in 
Kirkland Lake whkh is so fer north ft is 
not even funny? 

Now that hockey has been brought back 
insider Lapkrre said there is only one 
thing to dfo when they schedule the date. 

“We need to reschedule it to December 
when ft doesrit snow in Windsor? Lapi¬ 
erre said “The day before this would 
have been perfect but well see what we 
can do next year?

After Shannon Dean and Emily Mc- 
Cbskey led the Lancers dienee fern 
the power hitter and middle blocker 
positions, Hodgson said its time thdr 
supporting cast to step up to make this 

team a threat everywhere 

*We need some different players to step 
up? Hodgson. We know what Emily 
and Shannon can do offensively and 
people are starting to catch onto that 
We need Jade Zfebarth and Gariagh 
Bailey to step up and take some pressure 
off of those players and make it an easier 
game for everyone?

"They are tough teams but we can get 
ourselves into a good position? Hodg¬ 
son sakl "Our goal is be in second or 
third in our division and probably play 
Western in the playoffs and hopefully

Windsor Express Back On Track NBL 
Central Division After Three-Win Weekend 


Sports Editor 

Two big additions to the Windsor Ex¬ 
press roster helped snap the two-time 
defending NBL Canada champions 
back into their winning ways to begin 

After failing to score 100 points in their 
first two games, the Express sidled 
Brandon Robinson - the NRIs sec¬ 
ond all-time leading scorer - and also 
saw guard Tony Bennett come back to 
the team from a suspension incurred 
last season The two star guards were 
thrust into the spodigjht right away and 
they shone bright for the Express over 
a three-day span whkh saw Windsor 
defeat the Orangeville Afc, Niagara Riv¬ 
er lions and the London Lighting - all 
within a 48 hour span 

Ora - the three-ganie stretch, Robin¬ 
son average over 25 points per contest 
and hit key shot after key shot to keep 
the Express offense on track and paced 
them to the top of the NBIs central di¬ 
vision at 3-2 

Tm just happy to be here and contrib¬ 
ute to wins, the expectations are high 71 
Robinson said "Coach puts us aD in a 
position to be great and he just Ids us do 
what we need to do as professionals fve 
proven myself in this league, Fve been 
here since it started and now Fm just 
glad to be here in Windsor" 

Prior to the weekend grind, Express in¬ 
terim head coach Tony Tones addressed 
the importance ofthese stretch of games 
to his team during a practice after the 
0-2 start and said he drew bade on his 
experience as a college coach at Tennes¬ 
see and Auburn to try and approach the 
three-game stretch as if it were a tourna¬ 

“I told them we can ascend to the top of 
the league by winning these three games 
in a rowf Jones said “They ve played 
preseason tournaments and postseason 
tournaments where you have to play 
three games to win a diampronship. I 
told them lets win each pme and get 
back in this division."

Windsor battled Orangeville on New 
Years Day and Robinson was impres¬ 
sive for the Express in his debut scoring 
21 points to go along with seven assirts 
and four rebounds in a 111-94 victory 
over the A on their home court at the 
Athlete Institute Jan. 1. 

Three other Windsor Express play¬ 
ers scored in double-digits as Chris 
Commons sawed a game-high 22 
points while Bennett and Adrian Moss 
scored 20 and 19, respectively. The 5*8" 
guard Moss also grabbed a game-high 
total of nine rebounds while Commons 
and Siane Ross hauled down six re¬ 
bounds each. 

The next night in Windsor, the River 
Lions visited the WFCU Centre for the 
first time as the leagues newest fran¬ 
chise The Express needed all of the 
firepower they could muster as Niagara 
boasted two of the top-five scorers in 

the league in Ijogm Stutz and Sammy 
Zeglinski who average over 28 points 
per game The game was a offense-filled 
thriller from tip to finish and Robinson 
was the man controlling the pulse. 

In his debut game in front of Windsor 
fens, Robinson scored 35 points and 
added seven assists. Also having huge 
offensive performances were Express 
veterans Commons and Bennett, 
who both scored 29. Niagaras big two 
burned the Express defense for a com¬ 
bined 60 paints but after a tigfrtly-oon- 
tested fourth quarter and multiple foul 
shots in the waning minutes, Zeglinkis 
three- pointer to tk the game arthe buzz¬ 
er was short Windsor toc^c the 118-115 
decision to earn their first victory at the 
WFCU Centre this season 

“Its not the xs and os, its the Jlmmys and 
Joes - or the Tonys and BrandortC Jones 
said "Those guys help our basketball 

especially on the offensive end Those 
guys have a skill set that really fits my 

A date with their rivals from London 
at Budweiser Gardens loomed a mere 
16 hours later as the Lightning hosted 
Windsor for an afternoon contest Feb 
3, Fatigue was evident in the games 
first half, as both teams had played the 
night before Windsor trails 52-43 at 
halftime but stormed back in the third 
quarter and outscored London 25-19 
to take an ll-point edge into the final 
frame A back-and-forth battled ensued 
throughout the last 12 minutes of action 
butneeded the final momentetodedare 
a winner. 

With the game tied at 91-91 in the final 
20 seconds, Windsors newest acqui¬ 
sition made another game huge im¬ 
pact by crossing over his defender and 
knocking down a three-point shot with 

10 seconds to go. London pushed the 
ball up court T^shawn Pattersonk long 
ball rimmed out and the Express took a 
94-91 win back to the Rose City. 

Tits an unbelievable turnaround w and 
thafs tough on the athletes but we have 
some athletes who have some pride," 
Jones said "You haw to play whos on 
your schedule no matter where they are 
at and what time they say the game is.

A big win it was indeed for the Lancers 
to bear the seventh ranked Badgers who 
brought a near perfect 6-1 record on 

their home court, the Bob Davis Gym¬ 
nasium* In addition to echoing coach 
VaDee and Steers enthusiasm concern¬ 
ing the win Rogers said this season has 
been a difficult transition for her, but she 
is more aware that Emily Prevost and 
her need to step up more ofiensivdy 
after the graduation of leading scorer 
Korissa WiDiams and Jocelyn Laroque- 
whobothwon five CIS national tides for 
the program. 

“ff this team is going to have a chance 
to win a sixth national tide, it means we 
can't fall asleep on defense,” Roger said 

Rrevost finished the game with eight 
points including shooting 4-4 from tlie 
free throw line in the four point victory: 
Prevsot s^d she lias accepted her in¬ 
creased role as a starter and co-captain 
this year but it was the teams defense 
that led them to victory 

*We also had some defensive goals and 
I think we did a good job executing 
themT Prevost said 

In this contest Windsors bench out¬ 
sailed that of Brocks 33-6 and they out 
rebounded the Badgers 49-33 in a hotly 

contested affair featuring five ties and five 
lead changes, with neither team leading 
by more than six points throughout the 
contest Rog^r led all scorers with 19

New Sexual Misconduct 
Policy is Open to Suggestions 


News Editor 

This year the University of Windsor 
has been wuridrg hard a new policy to 
hdp raise awareness to and prevent any 
sexual misconduct in the cimpus com¬ 
munity* * 

Right from the beginning of fiist semes¬ 
ter, the university lias pushed forward 
a sense of community and anti-rape 
culture by bringing in a variety of guests 
and forming diifenml fpoups. The first 
public draft of the policy lias been re¬ 
leased and can be accessed for review 
and commentary by alL 

"We know that one in four women are 
sexually assaulted over their university 
period,” said faydee Tarpeh, president of 
the UWSA. “ffis important to have apok 
icy on campus that keeps the campus 
safe, especially our female population” 

The policy focuses on the misconcep¬ 
tions and myths around sexual assault 
and states "these myths downplay the 
seriousness of sexual misconduct and 
confuse our understanding of consent 1 
Along with this is a definition the poli¬ 
cy bdieves people should understand 
about sexual assault. 

*Tve taken a look and renewed the sex¬ 
ual policy' - its really good in my opin¬ 
ion; said Tarpeh Tve sat down with a 
couple of people and weve agreed dial 
the university and committee dedicated 
to the policy has done a very good job 
with it Hl& a standalone pdky which 
means it will take precedence with its 
own cases," 

Another main focus of the policy is die 
rights of die survivor; which indudes 
they be treated with compassion, dig¬ 
nity and respect, be informed about 
disclosing, reporting and complaint 

The first draft {/Windsor's sexual assault policy is available online at . Vie University is asking for any and alt comments and sug¬ 
gestions to be made by this weekend .

options and the limits to confidentiality 
with each option and to have 
reasonable and necessary actions taken 
to prevent further unwanted contact 
with the alleged perpetrator amongst 

Shane Morris, a student at the universi¬ 
ty, said i£& important to protect both the 
males and females of the university and 

its obvious we should liave a policy in 
place to prevent sexual assault 

It needs to cover a H grounds, not just 
what we perceive as socual assauttT said 
Morris. "Unsolicited groping through 
slander all needs to be covered Sdiod 
should be a safe place for young adults 
and whatever we can do to protect each 
other is necessary? 

Outlined in the review is also the steps to 

take to disclose, report and take further 
preventative actions against it happen¬ 
ing again, 

Dhouha Trike the senator of the UWSA 
involved with, the policy said it woukbit 
be possible without the hard work and 
efforts of die working committee. 

“The University of Windsor plans to 

have the final version of the pbBcy re^ 
leased by the end of February of 2016”

Bored Of The Gym? 
Take a Swing At Pole 


The Lance Contributor 

You know who you are. Maybe yarn 
sick of running on a treadmill staring at 
a wall or a TV broadcastingsomething 
youaxildrit care less about Maybethe 
idea ofliftingweights even with aspotter 
has you fading a Me hitinudated May¬ 
be you're just not feeling the motivation 
to drag yourself into the gym to do die 
same things over and over again If 
you're feeling like your fitness routine 
needs a Me shaking up bid you're not 
entirely sure how to do it maybe pole 
fitness is just the ticket 

There are a couple of options iffWindsor 
for alternative fitness* and pok dancing 

classes that can be just as challenging as 

of them* If you think it's about learning 
to be a stripper, think again; & a fun, 
involved, incredible ^nmgfti-buikling 
activity that may just be what you need 
to motivate you to actually exercise, and 
have a good time while doing it 

Vertika Bole Fitness, located at 1437 Ot- 

ttrcs as 

wd! as veitica! fmire and pllates. 

“Barre closes infuse Aments of ballet 
training and the bane aspect of bafletT 
said Laroche. “But as an ex-dancer, its 
definitely not ballet Its way more ath¬ 
letically geared It 1ms more of a focus on 
the lower body, [but also] works its way 
up. Its fantastic for streamlining and 
lengthening muscle tissue 

Laiodies pilates dasses are based on the 
Stott Mates brand, which focuses on 
proper bodily alignment and exercis¬ 
ing in the safest and most dfective way 

Instructor Elizabeth Larodie, who 
teaches bane and pibaes dasses at Ver¬ 
tika, said it's totally normal to feel sonic 
trepidation walking into a studio tike 
Vertika for the first time, and even the 
most outgoing people might fed a Me 
shy trying to pull off some sexy moves 
while seeing themselves in front of a 
floor-to ceiling mirror She did add 
however, pretty much everyone warms 
up after doing a few dasses in the studio, 
not to mention these are definitely perks 
to attending dasses versus going to the 
gym alone. 

“When 1 hi at the gym Tm a little bit re¬ 
luctant to go anywhere near things like 
the free weights, espedaltyasawomanT 
said Laroche 'The only thing I really 
get when fm going to the gym, unless 1 
realty push myself, is cardkx And when 
you come to a group setting, especially 
a smaller group setting like at Vertika, 
you get personalized attention, you get 
pushed way past things you thought 
you were capable of, and you just get 
a bigger working knowledge [ot your 
body] ...and how to properly engtge [it). 

“I find the dass setting is my preferred 
kind of workout I just get so much 
more out of it than by going to the gym 
Plus, when you're on your own, the mo¬ 
tivation to go just diminishes every sin¬ 
gle time unless ym get into a solid hab¬ 
it Generali)' people lose motivation and 
they lose tfak personal urge to go run on 
the treadmill. When you're coming to 
a dass, you make friends here, )*xi get 
really dose to the fiistructotandgetth^ 
extra urge to go to spend your time in a 
class setting.” 

If youre the type of person who wants 
to try something unconverrtfona! but 
maybe don't want to jump head-first 
into pok fitness, Larodie said there are 
many benefits to her barre and pilules 

“Is all about getting to a neutral skeleton 
position, making sure that you are very 
safe in every position that you're doing 
and building on top of perfect aligp- 
mentT said Larodie "Is never gok^ 
to be something where you're pushed 
to the end but your alignment is kind 
of crummy, and you get a great work¬ 
out but after three weeks your shoulder 
hurts. It's utilized by a lot of physiother¬ 
apists in the sense that it reaBy helps to 
keep you stoiduraliy aligned and very 
wflh areaBygoodivorkcjuL It needs to 
be very safe and very effective for that 
individual txxty’ 

1 £ on the other hand you are feeling a 
bit more adventurous and want to jump 
right into doing pok fitness, co-owner 
Carta Ckmerson said there are abso¬ 
lutely benefits to doing pole than just 
the muscular strength gained from the 
dasses. Arguably something even more 
valuable self-confidence 

“Plok really helps you develop a better 
sense of yourself and fed better and 
more confident in your body 1 said 
Ckmerson "The gifts that Tve been 
teaching for a period of time have come 
in and said they were really shy and they 
fdt really uncomfortable about their 
bodies, and there were a lot of things 
they hated about themselves. After 
doing pok they teamed to love their 
body' a bit more with all of their flaws, 
and the only thing they changed about 
their body was lading more comfort¬ 
able with it I think a lot of women really 
fed asdf-cortfidence boost, and they see 
the things they re capable of doing with 
their bodies that they had no idea they 
could do before” 

Vertika features a dass policy where 
anyone can drop in cm a dass for $10 
to get a sense of the atmosphere and 
the kind of workouts you can gam from 
bdng them Additionally, they will give 
students a 10 per cent discount off a 
membership fee. 

Breathe Mates & FitnessSindio also of¬ 
fers, as you might have guessed, pilates 
dasses, as well as pole fitness dasses 
and something that looks as cod as it 
sounds: aerial yoga* The bask principle 
is yoga performed in silk hammocks, 
which allow students to bend and 
stretch themselves into deeper poses 
thanks to increased freedom of move¬ 
ment from being off the pound 

Co-owner of and instructor at Vertika Pole Fitness Alexandra Michelle and two of her students suspend 
themselves cm their poles during the Pole Choreography class January 25.

Breathe co-owner Nikki Sebastian said 
aerial yoga is accessibk for people of all 
ages, and mentioned she has people in 
her dasses who are SOyeats-dd and 
hanging from the cdling 

“Theresa something kind of special about 
these aerial and pok dasses because its 
different and fun, and you dorit neces¬ 
sarily fed like youre going to a work¬ 
out," said Sebastian. “You're focused on 
the progress that's made and the things 

being accomplished The benefits of 
going upside down, the benefits of go¬ 
ing deeper in the poses... you fed good 
when you come out of the dass.” 

As tar as the studied pole fitness goes, 
Breathe is a veteran in the dasses, having 
offered them for seven years, Sebastian 
said they are intended for everyone of all 
shapes, sizes* ages, and fitness goals. 

‘Some people do come to fed sexiness 

and do something thafs fun and a Me 
more risque, and some come very fo¬ 
cused to achieving fitness [goals] and 
learning certain poses on the pok as 
an extension of things they're currently 
doing,” said Sebastian “Wecan ^erto 
aU of that” 

You know what they say: the best 
things happen outside of your comfort 
zone. Andnot dreading going out to ex¬ 
ercise? That sounds pretty good to me.

Mobile apps have helped convenience 
certain medial tasks and this newest 
app available to University of Windsor 
students may not only do that, but save 
tliem from parking tickets. 

Honk Mobik is an app which allows a
